Enterprise applications are being increasingly deployed on cloud infrastructures. Often, a cloud service provider (SP) enters into a Service Level Agreement (SLA) with a cloud subscriber, which specifies performance requirements for the subscriber’s applications. An SP needs systematic Service Level Planning (SLP) tools that can help estimate the resources needed and hence the cost incurred to satisfy their customers’ SLAs. Enterprise applications typically experience bursty workloads and the impact of such bursts needs to be considered during SLP exercises. Unfortunately, most existing approaches do not consider workload burstiness. We propose a Resource Allocation Planning (RAP) technique, which allows an SP to identify a time varying allocation plan of resources to applications that satisfies bursts. Extensive simulation results show that the proposed RAP variants can identify resource allocation plans that satisfy SLAs without exhaustively generating all possible plans. Furthermore, the results show that RAP can permit SPs to more accurately determine the capacity required for meeting specified SLAs compared to other competing techniques especially for bursty workloads.
