1. A computing node for migrating a virtual machine, the computing node comprising:

  • a virtual machine migration module to receive a request to migrate a virtual machine to a destination computing node, wherein the request includes a service level requirement;

    a service level management module to determine platform resources needed to migrate the virtual machine and satisfy the service level requirements; and

    a resource management module to (i) determine whether required platform resources are currently available to the compute node and (ii) reserve the required platform resources for a predicted migration time in response to a determination that the required platform resources are currently available;

    wherein the virtual machine migration module further causes the virtual machine to migrate to the destination computing node using the reserved platform resources in response to the reservation of the required platform resources.
