<< Back to AuthorityCalendarPolicy

A control fro managing virtual machine (VM) allocation. Unlike VMControl this control does not keep track of each VMM host. Instead it assumes that there exists a service for allocating VMs, responsible for the selection of hosts for each VM. The control maintains a count of available VMs and defers to the external service for placement choices.

This policy is used to integrate Eucalyptus as a substrate in Orca. The same policy can be used to integrate Amazon EC2 .
