So you are looking for a product which will monitor a pool of hosts and
attempt to automatically optimise based on some criteria, such as
overall power consumption, density of cpu usage?

I'm not aware of any thing which does that, I'd be surprised if such
things didn't exist though. (Citrix used to have a product, but it was
discontinued AFAIK, I'm not in that group though). Is your PhD
supervisor not able to advise on prior art in this field?

If you just want to consolidate things for comparison without all the
automatic stuff then just start the vms that way, or use migration to
move things around.
