This paper introduces a method to accomplishspecific target loads in virtualization based data centers. Within the last few years, the development of data centers moved into high-grade flexible architectures that adapt to the needs (by means of virtualization). This flexibility can be used by loadmanagement methods to minimize and also to manipulate the energy demand in order to adapt to price fluctuations and to prevent demand peaks in power grid as well. We developed a method that is able to accomplish specific load profile optimized for this. Estimations done show that the chosen approach satisfies this task very well.
