Machine Learning For Virtual Machine Migration Plan Generation

#artificialintelligence 

Figure 1 depicts a flow diagram of a process for including parallelism when generating a virtual machine migration plan according to an embodiment. Exemplary embodiments relate to using machine learning for virtual machine (VM) migration plan generation. Embodiments can enforce both a colocation and an anti-colocation policy using colocation and anti-colocation contracts. A VM migration plan can be created by processing a first mapping of VMs to hosts along with a second mapping of VMs to hosts. Pre-processing can be performed followed by machine search techniques with heuristics and pruning mechanisms to generate serialized optimal paths from the first state (i.e., an origin state) to a second state (i.e., a goal state).
