The recent growth in the data centre usage and the higher cost of managing virtual machines clearly demands focused research in reducing the cost of managing and migrating virtual machines. The cost of virtual machine management majorly includes the energy cost, thus the best available virtual machine management and migration techniques must have the lowest energy consumption. The management of virtual machine is solely dependent on the number of applications running on that virtual machine, where there is a very little scope for researchers to improve the energy. The second parameter is migration in order to balance the load, where a number of researches are been carried out to reduce the energy consumption. This work addresses the issue of energy consumption during virtual machine migration and proposes a novel virtual machine migration technique with improvement of energy consumption. The novel algorithm is been proposed in two enhancements as VM selection and VM migration, which demonstrates over 47% reduction in energy consumption.
