Pricing and peak aware scheduling algorithm for cloud computing


The proposed cloud computing scheduling algorithms demonstrated feasibility of interactions between distributors and one of their heavy use customers in a smart grid environment. Specifically, the proposed algorithms take cues from the dynamic pricing and schedule the jobs/tasks in ways that the energy usage is what distributors are hinted. In addition, a peak threshold can be dynamically assigned such that the energy usage at any given time will not exceed the threshold. The proposed scheduling algorithm proved the feasibility of managing the energy usage of cloud computers in collaboration with the energy distributor.
