  1. 1. Energy Saving Software based on Cloud Computing for Adjustable Processing Environments ( ESSCCAPE ) The Green Cloud
  2. 2. <ul><li>Reduced energy use and therefore reduced energy expenditure. </li></ul><ul><li>Direct measurable cost savings and value delivery. </li></ul><ul><li>Carbon emission reductions. </li></ul><ul><li>Anticipate future green regulations. </li></ul><ul><li>Improved corporate branding/image. </li></ul><ul><li>Competitive differentiator: become preferred Green IT partner. </li></ul><ul><li>Improved management capabilities for data center operation. </li></ul>Introduction Why Green IT ?
  3. 3. Introduction Who is thinking in green ?
  4. 4. <ul><li>Dynamically adding or removing hardware resources could help to stop the energy misuse. </li></ul><ul><li>A generic approach is needed to control server hardware usage among different tasks. </li></ul><ul><li>A scalable approach is needed: not only increasing the number of nodes, but also resizing the virtualized hardware resources and/or outsourcing the computational needs (i.e. Amazon EC2). </li></ul><ul><li>Security : virtualization isolates data and computing resources from potential attacks. </li></ul><ul><li>Incremental Scalability . </li></ul><ul><li>Agility/Flexibility . </li></ul><ul><li>Service-oriented . </li></ul><ul><li>Public clouds : pay-per-use model. </li></ul>Introduction Why Cloud? From Buzzword to a Real Alternative
  5. 5. Introduction Some Cloud Platforms, Providers and Enablers <ul><li>What do the following companies all have in common: Amazon, Microsoft, Google, EMC, VMware, IBM, Sun, Dell, Akamai,, NetSuite, and Activision. Answer: Cloud Computing. Merrill Lynch analysts reckon that by 2011 the volume of cloud computing market opportunity will amount to $160BN, including $95BN in business and productivity apps (e-mail, office, CRM, etc.) and $65BN in online advertising.” Merrill Lynch. </li></ul>
  6. 6. <ul><li>Nowadays, Green IT is a hot topic for the industry. </li></ul><ul><li>The problem is that... </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Data Centers are scaled in order to cope with computational peak workloads. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Data Centers are overdimensioned . </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Server processors are idle most of the time. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Data Center energy saving is a huge opportunity for companies and there are a great amount of initiatives to maximize the energy efficiency, thus reducing operational and infrastructure costs. </li></ul><ul><li>To achieve the goal of Energy Efficiency we need: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>A well-dimensioned Data Center which uses the resources/components only when needed . The peak workloads are covered by outsorcing the computational needs. </li></ul></ul>Project Overview Our point of view It is not a green approach ... ... A green approach is ...
  7. 7. <ul><li>Virtualization technologies and Cloud computing play a key role in this context. </li></ul><ul><li>Our proposal aims at: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>developing an integrated solution to monitor and control the energy consumption of all the Cloud Nodes. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>taking advantage of all the available information: energy consumption ratings of all the components, current wokload in each Cloud Node, data rates, computational resources location, etc. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>dynamically adapting the active hardware to the needs in terms of computing and communication resources which are required by the running services. </li></ul></ul>The Green Cloud Project Overview Our point of view
  8. 8. <ul><li>In four steps: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>obtaining information about the Cloud Nodes: components, workloads, computing resources locations, etc. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>generating policies to improve the energy consumption, using all the available information. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>applying this policies in the Cloud Nodes. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>determining whether the components of the Cloud fit the needs for the future workload or an increase / reduction of hardware is advisable. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Green Scope: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Generic issues not aiming at reducing the energy waste which are common to Cloud Computing infrastructures are not the focus of this proposal </li></ul></ul>Project Overview Our point of view
  9. 9. <ul><li>Our solution covers the green area . Nevertheless, a cloud is a cloud (i.e. for Amazon its cloud is a private one) so this approach is applicable to both sides (with some special features). </li></ul><ul><li>The Company Staff’s machines are part of the problem and part of the solution too. </li></ul>Project Overview Public or Private? Both Private Cloud (DataCenter) Public Cloud, i.e. company staff’s machines
