Our paper describes iVMp an interactive VM placement algorithm, that allows CAs to become 'agile' capital allocators that can interactively propose and update constraints and preferences as placements are recommended by the system. To the best of our knowledge this is the first time that this interactive VM placement recommendation problem has been addressed in the academic literature. Our results show that the proposed algorithm finds near optimal solutions in a highly efficient manner.||Funding Details:||Science Foundation Ireland||Type of material:||Conference Publication||Publisher:||Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers (IEEE)||Copyright (published version):||2013 IEEE||Keywords:||Capital Allocation;Server consolidation;VM placement||DOI:||10.1109/CLOUD.2013.4||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Peer reviewed||Conference Details:||IEEE 6th International Conference on Cloud Computing, Santa Clara Marriott, CA, USA, 28 June - 3 July, 2013|
