Research Area:  Cloud Computing
Cloud Computing offers indispensable infrastructure for storage and computing facilities for development of diversified services. The large utilization of resources leads to increased energy consumption that has imposed a limit on performance growth. Owing to high operational costs and carbon dioxide footprints, an efficient energy management technique needs to be developed and deployed that reduces overall energy consumption of a cloud environment while maximizing the resource utilization. In the first phase of this research, some virtual machine migration techniques were explored. In the second phase, a virtual machine migration technique has been implemented which aims at reducing energy consumption in cloud datacentres.
