Abstract—Today, Infrastructure-as-a-service providers are
trying to minimize the cost of data center operations, while
maintaining the Service Level Agreements. This can be
achieved by one of the advanced state-of-the-art services of
virtualization - the live migration capability. Live migration is
defined as the process of transferring an active virtual machine
from one physical machine to another without any
disconnection. This is achieved by transferring all of the
encapsulated states of the VM from one host to another. It has
become an essential tool for efficient management of resources
in a data center by enabling server consolidation and load
balancing. There are two classical migration techniques,
namely - pre-copy and post-copy, which employ different
memory transfer mechanism during the offloading of a VM. In
this paper, we propose a novel hybrid live migration technique
by combining the existing pre-copy and post-copy approaches.
Compare to its counterparts, our hybrid technique is a fast,
efficient and a reliable migration technique.
Index Terms—Cloud computing, IaaS, virtualization, virtual machine, data center, physical memory, load balancing, cluster, resource allocation, writable working set.
