Project description

The importance of virtualisation in today's data centers is continously increasing, due to the advent of multi-core architectures. Having an accurate model for making performance predictions is vital for allowing a solid consolidation policy. The goal iof this research is to devise a rigorous methodology that allows the estimation of performance in a virtualised environment, taking the various execution layers into account.
