Abstract

This letter proposes a smart inter-and intra-datacenter workload dispatching scheme, Joint Electricity price-aware and Cooling efficiency-aware load balancing (JEC), to cut the electricity cost of distributed datacenters. Evaluation shows JEC outperforms existing schemes and achieves significant reduction on the total electricity cost of distributed datacenters.
