Cloud computing provides many services to its users. For this the cloud providers install very large datacenters. But these datacenters consume an enormous amount of electrical energy. This becomes expensive in terms of money as well as environmental degradations. Thus, there is a need to lower the power consumption in the datacenters. In this paper, the authors implement a policy that uses minimum migration time as VM selection policy in place of power aware VM selection policy and compare it with existing BFDP algorithm as well as with the non-power aware datacenter.
