Reducing energy consumption is a critical step in lowering data center operating costs for various institutions. As such, with the growing popularity of cloud computing, it is necessary to examine various methods by which energy consumption in cloud environments can be reduced. We analyze the effects of virtual machine allocation on energy consumption, using a variety of real-world policies and a realistic testing scenario. We found that by using an allocation policy designed to minimize energy… CONTINUE READING
