Novel Power Management Technique for Energy-Efficient Cloud System Applications Using A Java Agent

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contributionpeer-review


The increasing growth in cloud service has also increased the power usage required to have excellent functionality and stable cloud services. Globally, there has been a massive growth in Internet activity and Internet users, which significantly impacts the cloud network’s power consumption rate. Therefore, having fundamental expertise in balancing the trade-off between cloud system performance and energy efficiency is the key to leveraging the cloud network’s alarming high power consumption rate. In this work, a mobile agent will be used to regulate the activities in data centre networks to minimise the energy usage rate at each runtime. Mobile agent technology is a powerful tool compatible with the distributive and adaptive cloud architectural design platform with a novel solution to its power usage excesses. Agents are empowered to switch-off switches/links that are inactive. Java agent was used to schedule and consolidate the servers and network activities. Our approach enhanced cloud resource utilisation and drastically increased power efficiency by reducing servers’ idle time.
