Nowadays Cloud computing has emerged as one of the most promising computer paradigms. The idea of selling software as a service has promoted IT enterprises to bet for this new paradigm. Cloud computing aims to power the next generation data centers not only offering software as a service but virtual services like hardware, data storage capacity or application logic. The increasing use of Cloud-based applications will also increase the power dedicated to the data centers that support this Clouds. Research in Cloud computing power saving techniques requires innovative solutions that have to be tested in real environments.
