Abstract—Virtualization can provide substantial benefits to cloud infrastructure services, also known as Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS), by facilitating dynamic resource management. We proposed an integrated architecture to extend the cloud infrastructure services with live resource scaling and migration of virtual machines to achieve cost-effective computing in IaaS. A prototype of the proposed architecture for memory scaling of the KVM virtual machines with the promising results is also implemented in Eucalyptus open-source private cloud platform.
Index Terms—Dynamic resource management, virtual machine scaling, migration, IaaS.
