Virtual machine placement (VMP) is mapping virtual machines (VMs) to appropriate physical machines (PMs) to achieve satisfactory objectives such as minimised energy consumption or maximised performance. VMP is considered as a non-deterministic polynomial-time hard (NP-hard) problem. Metaheuristic techniques are able to find near-optimal solutions to NP-hard problems. This paper presents a review upon metaheuristic approaches to VMP in cloud computing.
