ABSTRACT
Reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions is one of the most challenging research topics in ICT because of people's overwhelming use of electronic devices. Current solutions focus mainly on efficient power consumption at the micro level; few consider large-scale energy-management strategies. The low-carbon, nationwide GreenStar Network in Canada uses network and server virtualization techniques to migrate data center services among network nodes according to renewable energy availability. The network deploys a "follow the sun, follow the wind" optimization policy as a virtual infrastructure-management technique.
