*Energy Efficient Methods and Systems in the Emerging Cloud Era*

The energy consumption of information and communication technologies is
today significant even when compared with other industries. The collective
electricity consumption of communication networks, data centers and
personal computers is growing at a rate of 6.6% per year and is predicted
that 14% of the worldwide electrical energy in 2020 will be consumed by the
ICT sector. While in the past performance was considered as the primary
metric in the design of communication and computing systems, energy
consumption and power dissipation are nowadays the two main optimization
metrics. In fact, a new class of efficiency metrics have replaced the
traditional performance metrics. Normalised CPU utilisation/watt (for
compute bound tasks), IOPS/watt (when I/O is predominant), bytes/watt (for
network utilisation) and even application-related metrics like database
transactions/watt, are nowadays the most commonly used efficiency metrics
in several sectors, including, mobile/portable terminals, servers,
networking devices, etc. Designing power and energy efficient computing and
communication system requires modeling, analysis, simulation capabilities,
design techniques, optimization methods, algorithms and CAD tools operating
at all levels of the design flow. The goal of this special issue is to
report on innovative ideas and solutions for designing energy and power
efficient communication and computing systems in the emerging cloud
computing era.
