Energy-aware scheduling for infrastructure clouds

  title={Energy-aware scheduling for infrastructure clouds},
  author={Thomas Knauth and Christof Fetzer},
  journal={4th IEEE International Conference on Cloud Computing Technology and Science Proceedings},
More and more data centers are built, consuming ever more kilo watts of energy. Over the years, energy has become a dominant cost factor for data center operators. Utilizing low-power idle modes is an immediate remedy to reduce data center power consumption. We use simulation to quantify the difference in energy consumption caused exclusively by virtual machine schedulers. Besides demonstrating the inefficiency of wide-spread default schedulers, we present our own optimized scheduler. Using a… CONTINUE READING
