Clouds built on Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) model (such as JINR Cloud) gave us new universal and flexible tools and ways to use computing resources. These new tools may help scientists speed up their research work but at the cost of a significant drop (compared to the more traditional systems in science such as grid) of the overall utilization efficiency of an underlying infrastructure. The talk covers Smart Cloud Scheduler project aimed at optimizing the performance of the IaaS-based clouds, including its architecture, development status and plans. The project includes development of a software framework that would allow one to implement custom schemes of dynamic reallocation and consolidation of virtual machines. The resulting system will give a possibility to dynamically rebalance the cloud workload in an automated fashion in order to increase the overall infrastructure utilization efficiency.
