In cloud data center (CDC), reducing energy consumption while maintaining performance has always been a hot issue. In server consolidation, the traditional solution is to divide the problem into multiple small problems such as host overloading detection, virtual machine (VM) selection and VM placement and solve them step by step. However, the design of host overloading detection strategies and VM selection strategies cannot be directly linked to the ultimate goal of reducing energy consumption

Thereby reducing the generation of SLAV, ensuring the performance and reducing the energy consumption of CDC. Simulations driven by real VM workload traces show that our method outperforms the existing methods in reducing SLAV generation and CDC energy consumption.
