EIRP Based Energy Modelling For Green Cloud Services
Cloud Computing and the virtualization techniques have helped in developing better SaaS (Software as a Service) platforms. Simulated Software architecture has helped to schedule the VMs (Virtual Machines) in a Cloud provider. The obligation of providing high quality of service to customers leads to the necessity in dealing with the energy and performance trade-off, as aggressive consolidation may lead to performance degradation. This in-turn produces an excess carbon footprint due to the IT sector. The proposed EIRP (Energy/Instruction Rate Performance) based Energy efficient modelling and the subsequent algorithms proved 27% more efficient than the legacy systems. We employed real time Planet Lab workload for our simulations. The proposed algorithms significantly reduced energy consumption, while ensuring a high level of adherence to the SLA (Service Level Agreements).
