The provision of Desktop as a Service (DaaS) to companies using virtualization technology comes with advantages that improve service quality and reduce the costs incurred from service provision and maintenance. These advantages originate from the efficient use of resources in physical servers through virtual machine management. A virtual machine has various resource allocation and usage options in a single physical server where the machine is operated. Thus, a virtual machine management technique, such as virtual machine allocation and placement based on demand, enables the efficient management of data resources in the machine in accordance with the use patterns of users, even under complex load characteristics. Capitalizing on these innovative affordances, this study developed a virtual machine management technique for the efficient management of physical server resources. Companies can confirm the efficiency of the proposed technique via simulations grounded in resource use data from virtual and physical servers in a DaaS environment.
