Active CoordinaTion (ACT) - toward effectively managing virtualized multicore clouds
—A key benefit of utility data centers and cloud computing infrastructures is the level of consolidation they can offer to arbitrary guest applications, and the substantial saving in operational costs and resources that can be derived in the process. However, significant challenges remain before it becomes possible to effectively and at low cost manage virtualized systems, particularly in the face of increasing complexity of individual many-core platforms, and given the dynamic behaviors and resource requirements exhibited by cloud guest VMs. This paper describes the Active CoordinaTion (ACT) approach, aimed to address a specific issue in the management domain, which is the fact that management actions must (1) typically touch upon multiple resources in order to be effective, and (2) must be continuously refined in order to deal with the dynamism in the platform resource loads. ACT relies on the notion of Class-of-Service, associated with (sets of) guest VMs, based on which it ma...
