Data centers have been gaining increasing interest due to their capacity to store a large amount of information; as a result they have become the main support for the deployment of cloud computing. Currently, data centers face performance problems, such as: lack of guaranteed quality of service, security risks, management complexity and inflexibility. Virtualized data centers are an emerging tool to address these issues. However, their implementation brings a major challenge: How to optimally allocate the resource demands of virtual data centers on top of the physical infrastructure, so that the data center operating costs are reduced, improving the revenue for infrastructure providers and fulfilling the agreements of quality of service with the end users? This challenge is known as the Virtual Data Center Embedding problem. This paper presents survey of current research in this problem, and also proposes a taxonomic classification of the main approaches to solve it. Finally, opportunities for future research in resource allocation for virtualized data centers are discussed.
