Energy Optimization in Cloud by Appling Horizontal clustering


  • Chandigarh University, Mohali – 140413, Punjab, India


Task consolidation technology in Cloud Computing is an upcoming advancement and an effective approach to decrease the energy-consumption. Cloud environment application provider’s main goal is to consume the resources perfectly and gain maximum profit. This goal leads to job scheduling as a main focus and challenging issues in cloud environment. So for this, in this paper, horizontal clustering technique is applied on job to cluster the list of jobs from the same level. The clustering of task takes place on the basis of priority of tasks. The similar property tasks cluster on one machine as to execute similar tasks collectively.
