Designing an Energy-Efficient Cloud Network
The emerging cloud computing offers new computing models where resources such as online applications, computing power, storage and network infrastructure can be shared as services through the internet. The popular utility computing model adopted by most cloud computing providers (e.g., Amazon EC2, Rackspace) is inspiring features for customers whose demand on virtual resources vary with time. Energy consumption is the key concern in content distribution system and most distributed systems. These demands an accumulation of networked computing resources from one or multiple providers on data centers extending over the world.
