Abstract: - A distributed system is a collection of independent computers that appears to its users as a single coherent system. The main goal of distributed system is to make it easy for users and applications to access remote resources and to share them in a control and efficient way. To reduce the cost of infrastructure and electrical energy, enterprise datacenters consolidate workloads on the same physical hardware. It allows integrated management of heterogeneous workloads composed of transactional applications and long-running jobs, dynamically placing the workloads in such a way as to equalize their satisfaction. It also leverages virtualization control mechanisms to perform online system reconfiguration. For enterprise datacenters and cloud computing infrastructures, the resource utilization is a critical goal even in presence of heterogeneous workloads. To provide the better heterogeneous services in the distributed environment, the service-level agreements through multi issue negotiation for transactional and batch workloads are established and the load balancing mechanism is implemented. The use of live VM migration has enabled more effective sharing of system resources in a physical server. This project helps us to maximize mixed workload performance and increases overall system resource utilization.
