Plastic fantastic: Harnessing architectural plasticity for low cost, highly distributed and completely green clouds
MetadataShow full item record
The current paradigm of cloud computing dictates massive data centers that use excessive amounts of energy in order to operate and maintain their services. It is a side of the industry that has not been revamped as sustainability has become more and more important, but rather one that has followed in its own footsteps and continued to grow alongside the ever-increasing demand. Through modeling and presenting our own architectures, with an underlying focus on green energy, we are able to offer new options to how the cloud could be structured. While these architectures are deemed different from the classical cloud architecture, they are not different enough from already existing technologies. Merging them together into a large-scale adaptive architecture creates something that is completely different from what is available today, and results in an architecture that challenges the status quo.
