Cloud computing is an on-demand service since it offers dynamic flexible resource allocation for reliable and guaranteed services in pay as-you-use manner. Due to increasing demand for cloud computing and related services, cloud providers need to come up with methods and mechanisms that increase performance, availability and reliability of datacenters and cloud computing systems to satisfy customer requests while reducing cost. Therefore, optimization in cloud environments are essential. Resource management is a key part of this and it includes resource discovery, resource scheduling, resource allocation and resource monitoring. Since those are optimization problems that involve multiple constraints and objectives, we propose an evolutionary algorithm based approach to overcome them in both centralized clouds and distributed clouds.
