This paper designs and implements a load balancing scheme based on dynamic resource allocation policy for virtual machine cluster, which are running under para-virtualization mode on a cluster of physical machines (PM) in shared storage architecture. It monitors the real-time resources utilization of VMs and PMs, including CPU, memory and network, then uses instant resource reallocation for virtual machines (VM) running on same PM to achieve local VMs' load balancing, while uses live migration of VMs among PMs to achieve global VMs' load balancing. It optimize the resource allocation of VMs to achieve global load balancing of virtual machine cluster. The resource utilization of physical machines will be improved as well. Compared to traditional load balancing schemes based on task scheduling, it is application independent and works seamless on VMs hosting different kinds of applications.
