GreenCloud: A Packet-Level Simulator of Energy-Aware Cloud Computing Data Centers

Cloud computing data centers are becoming increasingly popular for the provisioning of computing resources. The cost and operating expenses of data centers have skyrocketed with the increase in computing capacity. Several governmental, industrial, and academic surveys indicate that the energy utilized by computing and communication units within a data center contributes to a considerable slice of the data center operational costs. In this paper, the authors present a simulation environment for energy-aware cloud computing data centers.
