Dynamic Optimization Solution for Green Service Migration in Data Centres
While many aspects of the future Internet are uncertain, one thing that is clear is that service demand will continue to rise. Also, advances in mobile devices and service technology will almost certainly cause service usage patterns to vary considerably. Another issue that the future Internet community must be acutely aware of is the huge movement towards more sustainable forms of computing and communications technology. With the recent attention that has been put on IT energy consumption (data-centers in particular), all computing and communications systems need to consider their environmental impact from the outset. With that in mind, the authors propose a solution for determining the optimal placement of services in data-center network, in order to maximize the overall renewable energy usage and minimize the cooling energy consumption.
