Dynamic provisioning is a useful technique for handling the virtualized multi-tier applications in cloud environment. Understanding the performance of virtualized multi-tier applications is crucial for efficient cloud infrastructure management. In this paper, we present a novel dynamic provisioning technique for a cluster-based virtualized multi-tier application that employ a flexible hybrid queueing model to determine the number of virtual machines at each tier in a virtualized application. We present a cloud data center based on virtual machine to optimize resources provisioning. Using simulation experiments of three-tier application, we adopt an optimization model to minimize the total number of virtual machines while satisfying the customer average response time constraint and the request arrival rate constraint. Our experiments show that cloud data center resources can be allocated accurately with these techniques, and the extra cost can be effectively reduced.
