Abstract: The advancement in the network technology like 3G, 4G, there is a large claim of computing resources at the Data Centre which in the background is consuming a large amount of power required to maintain these systems.Also, the large demand in the virtualization environment leads to VM Sprawl where unmanaged VMs lead to security loopholes. The fundamental technology available is very difficult to give an effective system without compromising performance or power.An approach to consolidate VMs without affecting the performance, also at the mean time without affecting the VM management is studied here. A comparative study is made with Penguin search optimization algorithm (PeSOA), particle swarm optimization (PSO), and Memetic algorithm. The study resulted with Memetic algorithm with an optimal usage of VMs. Also, a managed VM environment is created due to the limited VMs.
