Autonomous and Energy-Aware Management of Large-Scale Cloud Infrastructures
With the advent of cloud computing and the need for increasing amount of computing power, cloud infrastructure providers are now facilitating the deployment of large-scale data centers. In order to efficiently manage such environments three important properties have to be fulfilled by their resource management frameworks: scalability; autonomy (i.e. self-organization and healing); energy-awareness. However, existing open-source cloud management stacks (e.g. Eucalyptus, Nimbus, OpenNebula, OpenStack) have a high degree of centralization and limited power management support.
