Model-Driven Auto-Scaling of Green Cloud Computing Infrastructure

Cloud computing can reduce power consumption by using virtualized computational resources to provision an application's computational resources on-demand. Auto-scaling is an important cloud computing technique that dynamically allocates computational resources to applications to match their current loads precisely, thereby removing resources that would otherwise remain idle and waste power. This paper presents a model-driven engineering approach to optimizing the configuration, energy consumption, and operating cost of cloud auto-scaling infrastructure to create greener computing environments that reduce emissions resulting from superfluous idle resources.
