Resource Allocation and Server Consolidation Algorithms for Green Computing [ ]

In cloud computing data centers, the only interest was high performance without paying much attention to energy consumption that is growing rapidly. Many huge problems come up from this high energy consumption. Turning green is a new concept for data centers, to solve these problems. Green computing means using resources efficiently and eco-friendly. This research paper proposes a scalable system that helps data centers use energy in an efficient way, by combining a resource allocation algorithm and a server consolidation one, their goal is to minimize the number of physical machines used to execute all required tasks.
