Virtual Machine Knowledge Discovery and Representation: An Ontology-based Development
A virtual machine environment is dynamic, collaborative and continually evolving to enhance performance, availability, and resource utilization. A virtual client can be migrated to different hosts, and a different host can be migrated to a different cluster to provide high performance and resource allocation. This dynamic environment requires knowledge discovery of operational intelligence that supports critical processes such as backup, recovery and software deployment. The discovery of dynamic changes is a critical process that can be enhanced by an ontology-based approach to provide a high service level, improve the decision making process, and enhance competitive advantage. This paper reports on a knowledge-based conceptual model which utilizes ontology for a virtual environment to support the backup and recovery process. The prototype illustrates the potential support that may be obtained by utilizing Knowledge Management with an ontology-based solution. It offers a fast, efficient, and consistent representation and retrieval of information to increase the knowledge of the virtual environment’s dynamic changes.
