Virtualization is a critical technology issue in cloud computing. Virtualization technology faces two major challenges, namely, poor I/O throughput and long latency for data access. To address the issues, we present a distributed deadline modification SCAN mechanism called DDM-SCAN. We integrate the DDM-SCAN mechanism to Xen-based cloud platform. The result of our simulations show DDM-SCAN improve the I/O response time of Xen-based cloud platform 20% comparing to Flubber  mechanism and it also guarantee same or better quality of service (QoS) as compared with Flubber mechanism in Xen-based hypervisor. In advance, this paper provides more easy method to implement DDM-SCAN on Xen-based hypervisor rather than Flubber mechanism.
