Subject Re: [ANNOUNCE] Open source distributed virtual machine scheduling platform
Date Wed, 27 Apr 2016 06:27:17 GMT
Hi Gabriel,

Project looks promising. 

I was curious to know whether you guys are planning to add new algorithms or use the existing

P.S. I was working on same problem for my master’s thesis some 5 years back. My main intention
was to utilise the machine learning based approaches to solve the problem.
