Fairness-Utilization Trade-O Game Theory Algorithm For Efficient Resource Allocation In Cloud Computing

[Full Text]

On-demand resources organization is a significant feature of cloud computing (CC). Cloud providers need to ensure the intelligent distribution of computing resources (CR) so that no user gets improved resources than another’s. Develop Resource Utilization (RU) by reducing resource fragmentation when mapping virtual machines (VMs) to physical servers (PS). The purpose of this article is to propose an algorithm for allocating game theoretical resources (RAs) to users in terms of justice and resource use. Experiments on the implementation of FUGTA in a server cluster with 8 nodes show the optimality of this algorithm in maintaining reasonableness compared to the Hadoop (HDFS) scheduler. A simulation founded on Google workload tracing shows that the algorithm can decrease resource losses and attain higher RUrates than other distribution mechanisms.
