Efficient image deployment in cloud environments

Álvaro López García, Enol Fernández del Castillo
2016 Journal of Network and Computer Applications  
This overhead becomes larger for requests composed of several virtual machines to be started concurrently, and the illusion of flexibility and elasticity usually associated with the cloud computing model  ...  The biggest overhead for the instantiation of a virtual machine in a cloud infrastructure is the time spent in transferring the image of the virtual machine into the physical node that executes it.  ...  The authors want also to thank the IFCA Advanced Computing and e-Science Group.  ...

Energy-Oriented Partial Desktop Virtual Machine Migration

Nilton Bila, Eric J. Wright, Eyal De Lara, Kaustubh Joshi, H. Andrés Lagar-Cavilla, Eunbyung Park, Ashvin Goel, Matti Hiltunen, Mahadev Satyanarayanan
2015 ACM Transactions on Computer Systems  
Recent proposals have advocated the use of consolidation of idle desktop Virtual Machines (VMs). However, desktop VMs are often large, requiring gigabytes of memory.  ...  Modern offices are crowded with personal computers. While studies have shown these to be idle most of the time, they remain powered, consuming up to 60% of their peak power.  ...  SnowFlock supports rapid cloning of VMs by creating and running a replica of a VM with minimal CPU and memory state. As the replica runs, it attempts to access memory pages.  ...

2012 2012 International Conference on Cloud and Service Computing  
Flexible allocation of resources is one of the main benefits of cloud computing. Virtualization is used to achieve this flexibility: one or more virtual machines run on a single physical machine.  ...  We implemented and evaluated three methods of transferring virtual machine images for the OpenNebula cloud middleware.  ...  In other words, the resources are not used to work on the task for which the virtual machine is being deployed [3] . One of the fields that benefits from clouds is scientific computing.  ...
