In contrast with public clouds, private clouds have some unique features, especially when related to workflow scheduling. Of course, the trade-off problem between power and performance remains to be one of the key concerns. Based on the previous research, in this paper, the authors propose a hybrid energy-efficient scheduling algorithm using dynamic migration. The experiments show that it cannot only reduce the response time, conserve more energy, but also achieve higher level of load balancing.
