QoS plays a key role in evaluating a service or a service composition plan across clouds and data centers. Currently, the energy cost of a service's execution is not covered by the QoS framework, and a service's price is often fixed during its execution. However, energy consumption has a great contribution in determining the price of a cloud service. As a result, it is not reasonable if the price of a cloud service is calculated with a fixed energy consumption value, if part of a service's energy consumption could be saved during its execution. Taking advantage of the dynamic energy-aware optimal technique, a QoS enhanced method for service computing is proposed, in this paper, through virtual machine (VM) scheduling. Technically, two typical QoS metrics, i.e., the price and the execution time are taken into consideration in our method. Moreover, our method consists of two dynamic optimal phases. The first optimal phase aims at dynamically benefiting a user with discount price by transparently migrating his or her task execution from a VM located at a server with high energy consumption to a low one. The second optimal phase aims at shortening task's execution time, through transparently migrating a task execution from a VM to another one located at a server with higher performance. Experimental evaluation upon large scale service computing across clouds demonstrates the validity of our method.
