A Game-Theoretic Approach to Coalition Formation in Green Cloud Federations

Federations among sets of Cloud Providers (CPs), whereby a set of CPs agree to mutually use their own resources to run the VMs of other CPs, are considered a promising solution to the problem of reducing the energy cost. In this paper, we address the …

Fuzzy-Q&E: Achieving QoS Guarantees and Energy Savings for Cloud Applications with Fuzzy Control

We address the problem of managing cloud applications, consisting of a set of virtual machines (VMs), characterized by bursty and dynamic workloads, in such a way to provide guarantees on their Quality-of-Services (QoS) and, at the same time, to …

Power and Performance Management in Cloud Computing Systems

Cloud computing is an emerging computing paradigm which is gaining popularity in IT industry for its appealing property of considering ``Everything as a Service''. The goal of a cloud infrastructure provider is to maximize its profit by minimizing …

Exploiting VM Migration for the Automated Power and Performance Management of Green Cloud Computing Systems

Cloud computing is an emerging computing paradigm in which ``Everything is as a Service'', including the provision of virtualized computing infrastructures (known as Infrastructure-as-a-Service modality) hosted on the physical infrastructure, owned …

Energy-Efficient Resource Management for Cloud Computing Infrastructures

Cloud computing is growing in popularity among computing paradigms for its appealing property of considering "Everything as a Service". The goal of a Cloud infrastructure provider is to maximize its profit by minimizing the amount of violations of …
