  • Publication number: 20190384682
    Abstract: A method performed by an apparatus is provided. The apparatus extracts a virtual machine before starting operation from among virtual machines within a range of influence of a failure upon detection of the failure. With reference to a storage unit storing history information concerning operation of a virtual machine, the apparatus generates first information corresponding to time intervals of operation start time of the extracted virtual machine, second information corresponding to movement required time required to move the extracted virtual machine out of the range of influence of the failure, and third information corresponding to recovery required time required for recovery of the failure detected to have occurred. The apparatus determines whether to move the extracted virtual machine out of the range of influence of the failure, based on the generated first, second, and third information.
