ECO2Clouds investigates strategies that can both ensure effective application deployment on the Cloud infrastructures and reduce energy consumption and CO2 emissions.
ECO2Clouds will provide a challenging and innovative approach to Cloud computing service through different actions:
- developing mechanisms to collect eco-metrics data and quantify the environmental impact of operations at infrastructure and application level;
- developing a comprehensive approach to multi-cloud application deployment;
- developing evaluation mechanisms and optimization algorithms.
The carbon-aware mechanisms will be integrated into the FIRE facility BonFIRE.
ECO2Clouds will develop and test an application deployment strategy which will optimize the environmental impact. In addition it will propose an optimization model for Cloud infrastructures.
