Project overview


Entropy is a virtual machine manager for clusters which performs a globally optimized placement of virtual machines according to cluster resource usage and scheduler objectives.

Relying on an encapsulation of jobs into VMs, Entropy enables to implement finer scheduling policies through cluster-wide context switches: permutations between VMs present in the cluster. It results a more flexible use of cluster resources and relieve end-users of the burden of dealing with time estimates.
