This paper aims to develop a heuristic for the virtual
machines migration problem in geographically distributed cloud
data centers. The algorithm objective is to find a migration sequence
of virtual machines with the minimum cost corresponding
to the backbone traffic. Our heuristic consists of finding at each
iteration the order of migration that minimizes the maximum
traffic between the two considered data centers. Computational
results show that the proposed heuristic is rapid and efficient.
