Energy Efficient Cloud Control and Pricing in Geographically Distributed Data Centers [article]

Dražen Lučanin
2018 arXiv   pre-print
Existing cloud control methods are suitable only for a single data center or do not consider all the available cloud control actions that can reduce energy costs in geographically distributed data centers  ...  We also propose novel pricing schemes which account for the computational resource availability and costs that arise from our cloud control approach to enable both flexible, energy-aware and high performance  ...  Acknowledgements The research leading to this thesis has received funding from the following projects: (1) the "Holistic Energy Efficient Approach for the Management of Hybrid Clouds" (HALEY) project,  ...
