Electricity Cost Minimization in Distributed Clouds by Exploring Heterogeneity of Cloud Resouces and User Demands

Xu, Zichuan (Edward); Liang, Weifa; Xia, Qiufen


Distributed clouds, consisting of multiple data centers located at different geographical locations, provide a plethora of services to users. They however consume enormous amounts of electricity to power their data centers. The electricity bill is almost 30%-50% of their operational costs. Minimizing the electricity cost of distributed clouds thus is crucial to reduce the operational cost of their cloud service providers. In this paper, we study the problem of minimizing the electricity cost of...[Show more]
