CLOUD Computinghas had a huge commercial impact and has attracted the interest of the research community. Public clouds allow their customers to outsource the management of physical resources, and rent a variable amount of resources in accordance to their specific needs. Private clouds allow companies to manage on-premises resources, exploiting the capabilities offered by the cloud technologies, such as using virtualization to improve resource utilization and cloud software for resource…

GREEN SDN — An enhanced paradigm of SDN: Review, taxonomy, and future directions
A comprehensive review on SDN while mapping the characteristics of green computing with SDN is provided and the research stressed on the benefits of Green SDN through a proposed G‐SDN framework.


Exploiting Renewable Sources: When Green SLA Becomes a Possible Reality in Cloud Computing
A scheme for green energy management in the presence of explicit and implicit integration of renewable energy in data center is presented and greenSLA algorithm is introduced which leverages the concept of virtualization of green energy to provide per interval specific Green SLA.
Proactive Thermal-Aware Resource Management in Virtualized HPC Cloud Datacenters
An innovative proactive thermal-aware virtual machine consolidation (involving allocations as well as migrations) technique is proposed to maximize computing resource utilization, to minimize datacenter energy consumption for computing, and to improve the efficiency of heat extraction.
Off-Peak Energy Optimization for Links in Virtualized Network Environment
Multiple novel energy saving reconfiguration methods that globally/locally optimize VNE’s link power consumption, during off-peak time are discussed, and simulation results prove the proposed solutions are able to save notable amount of energy in physical links During off- peak time.
Water-Constrained Geographic Load Balancing in Data Centers
A water-aware workload management algorithm, called WATCH (WATer-constrained workload sCHeduling in data centers), which caps data centers’ long-term water consumption by exploiting spatio-temporal diversities of water efficiency and dynamically dispatching workloads among distributed data centers is proposed.
Optimize the Server Provisioning and Request Dispatching in Distributed Memory Cache Services
A stochastic network optimization problem is formulated, which aims at achieving objectives on the queue stability, energy cost and cache hit rate simultaneously, through the dynamic control of server activeness and request dispatching through the proposed efficient online algorithm based on dynamic programming.
Tandem Equipment Arranged Architecture with Exhaust Heat Reuse System for Software-Defined Data Center Infrastructure
This paper proposes a novel energy-efficient architecture for software-defined data center infrastructures that includes an exhaust heat reuse system that utilizes high-temperature exhaust heat from servers in conditioning humidity and air temperature of office space near the data center.
On the Latency and Energy Efficiency of Distributed Storage Systems
This work proposes and analyzes the energy efficiency of a heterogeneous distributed storage system in which erasure coding serves the dual purpose of reducing latency and increasing energy efficiency and establishes upper and lower bounds on the average latency for each data class under various scheduling policies.
however (for it was the literal soul of the life of the Redeemer, John xv. io), is the peculiar token of fellowship with the Redeemer. That love to God (what is meant here is not God’s love to men)
