  • Patent number: 9110730
    Abstract: A gateway apparatus relays communication between first and second servers provided in a data center and an external communication apparatus located outside the data center. A control apparatus obtains an observation result obtained by observing a communication amount being an amount of data transmitted/received per unit time for each of virtual machines operating in the first and second servers in association with a transmission source and a destination of the data. When the first number of hops is smaller than the second number of hops, the control apparatus controls an arrangement of the virtual machines so that the virtual machine whose communication amount with the external communication apparatus is larger is more likely to be placated in the first server.
