Energy efficiency is part of the EU’s Europe 2020. Within this frame, Cloud computing has the potential for energy saving among the centralization of data centres hardware and virtual infrastructures, but it doesn’t include platform and software application in its approaches.
The goal of this document is having a general overview of the business and technical requirements to develop appropriate methods and tools according to industry needs, being the basis of the project architecture. In other words, these requirements will be the starting point for developing a framework where a development team can learn the energy consumption behavior of its Cloud services at infrastructure, platform or application layers. The ASCETiC solution will be demonstrated in two commercial use cases.
However this is only the first requirements specification, as it will be refined and updated during the next 2 years.
This document has two companion documents, Market Analysis and State of the Art, also available in the website.
