Cloud computing is powered by an engine known as Internet data center (IDC). As cloud computing flourishes, the energy consumption and cost for IDCs are soaring. The energy cost minimization problem for IDCs in deregulated electricity markets has generated growing interest. In this paper we study how to leverage both the geographic and temporal variation of energy price to minimize energy cost for distributed IDCs. We propose a novel architecture and two algorithms for unified spatial and… CONTINUE READING
