    This book focuses on the current trends in research and analysis of virtual machine placement in a cloud data center. It discusses the integration of machine learning models and meta-heuristic approaches for placement techniques. Taking into consideration the challenges of energy-efficient resource management in cloud data centers, it emphasizes upon computing resources being suitably utilised to serve application workloads in order to reduce energy utilisation, while maintaining apt performance. This book provides information on fault-tolerant mechanisms in the cloud and provides an outlook on task scheduling techniques.
