Abstract for: Optimization of Virtual Machines Placement in Large Datacenters

In this article described an approach inspired by system dynamics and based on analysis of large volumes of historical data for building a test stand for evaluation and analysis of algorithms used for placing virtual machines to physical servers in large data center. Described solution was developed in terms of joint international two-year project. Besides building this model, focus of the project was distributed between analysis of big data sets gathered from data centers from different parts of the world and developing algorithms which will provide more optimal way of virtual machines distribution. Proposed approach cannot be called a classical application of system dynamics, but in many aspects it was kept aligned with this methodology because overall resource management problem fits this methodology well.
