In a Cloud Computing platform, Virtual Machine Provisioning involves instantiation of one or more Virtual Machines (VMs) that match the hardware and software requirements of an application and plays an important role in performance issues [4]. This paper discusses a VM Provisioning technique to reduce the response time in a cloud computing platform with PaaS type of deployment model when the physical servers hosting Virtual Machines in datacenters vary in their configurations. The method proposed in this paper is application specific and has been implemented on a test bed with VMware environment. Experimental results show that it can deliver better performance compared to random scheduling method for applications with repetitive computations
