In this paper, we present a new energy efficiency model and architecture for cloud management based on a prediction model with Gaussian Mixture Models. The methodology relies on a distributed agent model and the validation will be performed on OpenStack. This paper intends to be a position paper, the implementation and experimental run will be conducted in future work. The design concept leverages the prediction model by providing a full architecture binding the resource demands, the predictions and the actual cloud environment (Openstack). The prediction analysis feeds the power-aware agents that run on the compute nodes in order to turn the nodes into sleep mode when the load state is low to reduce the energy consumption of the data center.

In this paper, we would like to present our view on an energy efficiency mechanism based on a metaheuristic algorithm for a cloud broker in multi-cloud computing. The following study is only a design concept and therefore this paper does not intend offering some established results. The metaheuristic based algorithm we envisage using needs to deal with the multiple objectives defined by the cloud users and the Cloud Service Providers (CSPs). The goal of the mechanism mainly focuses on energy efficiency while searching for a balance point that satisfies the objectives of both the cloud users and the CSPs. In our proposed concept, the designed mechanism needs to include a component to collect the resources that underutilized by the cloud users (in public or private cloud environment) and offers them back to the cloud broker for re-rent.

The development of large scale data center and cloud computing optimization models led to a wide range of complex issues like scaling, operation cost and energy efficiency. Different approaches were proposed to this end, including classical resource allocation heuristics, machine learning or stochastic optimization. No consensus exists but a trend towards using many-objective stochastic models became apparent over the past years. This work reviews in brief some of the more recent studies on cloud computing modeling and optimization, and points at notions on stability, convergence, definitions or results that could serve to analyze, respectively build accurate cloud computing models. A very brief discussion of simulation frameworks that include support for energy-aware components is also given. [less ▲]
