Abstract
A virtual machine allocation strategy based on genetic algorithm is proposed, which randomly selects a number of physical hosts as the initial population, and then calculates the fitness of each physical host. After applying the selection, crossover and mutation operator in physical population of each host, it builds the next generation of population, and cycles the above steps until reaching the termination conditions, thus the selected physical host will be allocated to the virtual machine. This method helps in load balancing optimization and ensures the stability and reliability of cloud services running with reducing the energy consumption and operating costs for data centers.
