Experimental Study on the Energy Consumption in IaaS Cloud Environments


Energy consumption has always been a major concern in the design and cost of datacenters. The wide adoption of virtualization and cloud computing has added another layer of complexity to enabling an energy-efficient use of computing power in large-scale settings. Among the many aspects that influence the energy consumption of a cloud system, the hardware-component level is one of the most intensively studied. However, higher-level factors such as virtual machine properties, their placement policies or application workloads may play an essential role in defining the power consumption profile of a given cloud system. In this paper, we explore the energy consumption patterns of Infrastructure-as-a-Service cloud environments under various synthetic and real application workloads. For each scenario, we investigate the power overhead triggered by different types of virtual machines, the impact of the virtual cluster size on the energy-efficiency of the hosting infrastructure and the tradeoff between performance and energy consumption of MapReduce virtual clusters through typical cloud applications.
