Static Energy Efficiency

This document explains the scientific contributions of the components that form the ASCETiC architecture, and how every layer will be used by the corresponding roles interested in their functionalities. The key action of this first year of the project was to make all layers energy-aware and thus the majority of the components follow this objective. Thus energy consumption in applications can be measured by feeding the whole ASCETiC architecture with energy information.
In fact, the ASCETiC Toolbox is able to map energy consumption readings coming from a physical meter (measuring a physical host or node) to an application. This is first done by mapping energy information from physical hosts to VMs (IaaS layer), and then from VMs to applications (PaaS layer).
The document is divided in two major sections corresponding to the scientific contributions and the user guides.
