9780470908754: Energy Efficient Distributed Computing Systems (Wiley Series on Parallel and Distributed Computing)

The energy consumption issue in distributed computing systems raises various monetary, environmental and system performance concerns. Electricity consumption in the US doubled from 2000 to 2005.  From a financial and environmental standpoint, reducing the consumption of electricity is important, yet these reforms must not lead to performance degradation of the computing systems.  These contradicting constraints create a suite of complex problems that need to be resolved in order to lead to 'greener' distributed computing systems.  This book brings together a group of outstanding researchers that investigate the different facets of green and energy efficient distributed computing.

Key features:

  • One of the first books of its kind
  • Features latest research findings on emerging topics by well-known scientists
  • Valuable research for grad students, postdocs, and researchers
  • Research will greatly feed into other technologies and application domains

From the Back Cover:

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.
