Improving Energy Efficiency Through VM Placement and Consolidation Techniques in Cloud Computing

Authors(2) :-Bhumi K. Joshi, Prof. Dr. Chirag S. Thaker

Cloud computing offers utility-oriented IT services to users worldwide based on a pay-as-you-go model. Data centers hosting Cloud applications consume huge amounts of electrical energy that causes high operational costs and carbon footprints to the environment. Therefore we need green cloud computing solution that can reduce the environmental impact as well as minimize operational costs. A virtualization technology is used to consolidating multiple Virtual machines (VM) onto a minimum number of servers to improve energy efficiency of server. Dynamic VM placement, VM consolidation, and switching servers on and off as required, through all these techniques data centers can benefit higher server utilization and energy efficiency. In this paper I conducted a survey of research in energy-efficient computing as well as proposed a solution that will help to improve higher server utilization and energy efficiency for cloud computing.
