Data centers account for a growing percentage of US power consumption. Energy efficiency is now a first-class design constraint for the data centers that support cloud services. Service providers must distribute their data efficiently across multiple data centers. This includes creation of data replicas that provide multiple copies of data for efficient access, however selecting replicas to maximize performance while minimizing energy waste is an open problem. State of the art replica selection approaches either do not address energy, lack scalability and/or are vulnerable to crashes due to use of a centralized coordinator.
