This challenge has not yet been comprehensively addressed in the literature and in this paper we demonstrate that a multi-objective VM reassignment is feasible for large decentralised data centres. We show on a realistic data set that our solution outperforms other classical multi-objective algorithms for VM reassignment in terms of quantity of solutions (by about 15% on average) and quality of the solutions set (by over 6% on average).||Funding Details:||Science Foundation Ireland||Funding Details:||TU Vienna Distinguished Young Scientist Award 2011||Type of material:||Conference Publication||Publisher:||Conference Publishing Services||Keywords:||Large decentralised data centres; Machine reassignment; Multi-objective optimisation; Evolutionary algorithms||DOI:||10.1109/UCC.2015.21||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Peer reviewed||Conference Details:||2015 IEEE/ACM 8th International Conference on Utility and Cloud Computing (UCC), Limassol, Cyprus, 7 - 10 December 2015||This item is made available under a Creative Commons License:||https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-nd/3.0/ie/|
