Abstract

Virtualization offers flexible and rapid provisioning of the physical machines. Latest years isolation and migration of virtual machines have improved resource utilization as well as resource management techniques. This paper is focusing on the process of migration and leveraging virtual machine handling with this use of automation. We outline current trends and issues with regard to datacentre that apply policy-based automation. The automated solution will improve the efficiency of operations in the datacentre focusing mainly on improving resource handling as well as reducing power consumption. This could be proven particular useful in disaster management recovery wherein power supplies will need to be optimized. The focus of this work is on an approach for virtual machine and power management. We present a discussion to show such a functionality by using migration in order to reduce server sprawl, minimize power consumption and load balance across physical machines.
