The energy consumption issue in distributed computing systemsraises various monetary, environmental and system performanceconcerns. Electricity consumption in the US doubled from 2000to 2005. From a financial and environmental standpoint,reducing the consumption of electricity is important, yet thesereforms must not lead to performance degradation of the computingsystems. These contradicting constraints create a suite ofcomplex problems that need to be resolved in order to lead to'greener' distributed computing systems. This book bringstogether a group of outstanding researchers that investigate thedifferent facets of green and energy efficient distributedcomputing. Key features: * One of the first books of its kind * Features latest research findings on emerging topics bywell-known scientists * Valuable research for grad students, postdocs, andresearchers * Research will greatly feed into other technologies andapplication domains

Back cover copy

Offers valuable insight into the complex world of distributed computing systems Distributed computing allows multiple autonomous computers to work together to solve complex computational problems. The increased processing power comes at the cost of increased electrical power usage. Greener distributed computing systems would allow users to exploit the power of these systems while avoiding adverse environmental effects and exorbitant energy costs. One of the first books of its kind, this timely reference illustrates the need for, and the state of, increasingly energy-efficient distributed computing systems. Featuring the latest research findings on emerging topics by well-known scientists, it explains how constraints on energy consumption create a suite of complex engineering problems that need to be resolved in order to lead to "greener" distributed computing systems. "Energy-Efficient Distributed Computing Systems: " Summarizes the latest research achievements in the field of energy-efficient computing Strikes a balance between theoretical and practical coverage of innovative problem-solving techniques for a range of distributed platforms Provides a wealth of paradigms, technologies, and applications that target the different facets of energy consumption in computing systems Allows researchers to explore different energy-consumption issues and their impact on the design of new computing systems Includes carefully arranged, timely information dealing with vital factors affecting performance in a variety of important high-performance systems Offers research that greatly feeds into other technologies and application domains An ideal text for senior undergraduates and postgraduate students who study computer science and engineering, the book will also appeal to researchers, engineers, and IT professionals who work in the fields of energy-efficient computing.
