The approach and situation you have described is already investigated and resolution is provided in one of my research papers presented couple of years back in IEEE International SysCon Conference.
Here is the link of the paper if you wish to read. You really need to understand how the multi-dimensional situation in highly virtualised and orchestrated environment where the focus is just on ‘on-demand’ resource allocation for high priority business services. The problem is well studied, data is analysed and solution is already proposed in the paper.


The situation is worst in cloud environment where orchestration engine is configured with rules to provision resources with 'tunnel vision'. Unfortunately, neither cloud service providers nor consumers are aware of the ‘syndrome’.

Currently I am working on extending my research to resolve much advance problems in cloud environment which cannot be resolved simply by virtualisation, consolidation and orchestration components.

    I try and write something new 1-2 times per week; less if I'm travelling, more if I'm in the office. Hopefully you'll find the frequency about right!
