Cloud consists of datacenters with each datacenter having large number of physical machines. On top of each physical machine a virtual machine is created. In this paper a clustering based solution for VM migrations and consolidation is proposed. The proposed best fit VM placement approach is also energy efficient as compared to traditional VM placement approach.
