Special Issue on “Green Cloud Computing”

of The Journal of Grid Computing (Impact Factor 1.603)


Cloud computing is nowadays very popular and extended among Internet users. It provides a wide variety of services, from high performance computing to storage or web services. Behind the cloud, there are huge datacentres that are usually composed by a large variety of computing, storage, and networking devices, among others, that boost their power consumption. This important issue does not only concern the increasing cost of operating these centers, but it also implies an important environmental impact. 

Optimising the energy consumption in datacenters is therefore of high importance not only for companies, but for governments too. There are several ways that may lead to a reduction of the energy consumption in datacenters. An efficient utilization of the resources is obviously one of them, but not the only one. Research on novel more efficient cooling systems, new computing and network architectures, and storage systems is needed for the next generation green datacenters. In addition, the design of highly efficient software and services is a must for the green cloud.

This special issue focusses on novel solutions that contribute to the reduction of energy cunsumption in the cloud.

The topics covered by this special issue include, but are not limited to:
- Green ICT
- Green data centers and cloud networking
- Energy-efficient networking
- Energy-efficient protocols and algorithms
- Energy-efficient computing
- Energy-efficient data management
- Energy-efficient services
- Energy-efficient resource allocation
- Energy-aware schedule
- Efficient virtualization and consolidation
