This paper presents a membrane computing based approach for solving packing problems using a bio-inspired model which defines three types of entities: tissue, cells and molecules. A tissue evolution mechanism employing a symbiotic co-evolution between the cells and the molecules is used for packing molecules into cells, respecting some constraints. The coevolution relies on a symbiotic relationship between the cells and the hosted molecules, relationship involving a mutual exchange of chemicals and energy. The described approach is evaluated in the context of workload distribution in service centers with the goal of reducing the number of active servers while maintaining the agreed SLA for the workload.
