Demo descriptions

Title: Eco-aware Application Deployment on Federated Clouds

Abstract: This demo focuses on enabling users to deploy their applications on multiple clouds using different deployment configurations. The deployment configurations can have different effects on the energy consumption and CO2 footprint of underlying cloud infrastructure as well as cloud applications. The demo demonstrates the use of ECO2Clouds Portal and the Scheduler and how the interactions between the two can help users in making an informed decision about the actual deployment of their cloud applications.


Title: Monitoring of Environmental Impact of Cloud Applications

Abstract: Monitoring is an important aspect of cloud computing. In the ECO2Clouds project we have extended the scope of traditional resource level monitoring to cover the environmental aspects of cloud computing. This is realised by defining and implementing a set of eco-metrics at different levels of cloud infrastructure and applications. In this respect, this demo shows the different types of implemented metrics that contribute towards accessing the environmental impact of cloud computing.


Title: Raising Awareness about CO2 Footprint of Cloud Applications

Abstract: This demo focuses on how users can be informed about the environmental impact and resource utilization of their cloud applications. By demonstrating the reporting functionality of ECO2Clouds solution, we show how users are kept informed about the resource utilization, energy consumption and CO2 footprint of their cloud applications.


Title: Cloud Services in Community Networks for Supporting Energy Efficient Systems

Abstract: Community networking is an emerging model of a shared communication infrastructure in which communities of citizens build and own open networks. Community networks offer successfully IP-based networking to the user. In addition, some hosts are connected to the network nodes in order to provide network management and end user services. Recently, clouds have been proposed for community networks, and projects such as Clommunity have started deploying computational infrastructure to enable cloud computing within community networks. This demo focuses on demonstrating the cloud services and applications deployed within community networks, where different devices such as server, desktop PCs, low-resource embedded PCs and IoT boards are brought together forming a heterogeneous distributed cloud environment. Such cloud services can contribute to energy efficient systems by providing the communication and management infrastructure for Smart Grid applications.
