Based on the convex optimization theory, the energy-efficient and scalability problems of modern data centers are studied. Then a novel application-aware virtual machine (VM) placement algorithm is proposed to cope with these problems. Firstly, the definition of VM placement fairness and utility function are given, and the basic algorithm of VM placement which fulfills server constraints of physical machines is con-ducted. Secondly, we formulate the VM placement as an optimization problem. A two-tier algorithm that efficiently solves the VM placement problem in large scale was designed. Comparing to existing methods, we illustrate the performance improvement such as reducing the number of physical machines efficiently, decreasing communication distance between VMs, improving energy-efficient and scalability of data centers.
