Cost and performance aware scheduling technique for cloud computing environment

Santhosh Kumar Gorva, Latha C. Anandachar


Recently, lot of interest have been put forth by researchers to improve workload scheduling in cloud platform. However, execution of scientific workflow on cloud platform is time consuming and expensive. As users are charged based on hour of usage, lot of research work have been emphasized in minimizing processing time for reduction of cost. However, the processing cost can be reduced by minimizing energy consumption especially when resources are heterogeneous in nature; very limited work have been done considering optimizing cost with energy and processing time parameters together in meeting task quality of service (QoS) requirement. This paper presents cost and performance aware workload scheduling (CPA-WS) technique under heterogeneous cloud platform. This paper presents a cost optimization model through minimization of processing time and energy dissipation for execution of task. Experiments are conducted using two widely used workflow such as Inspiral and CyberShake. The outcome shows the CPA-WS significantly reduces energy, time, and cost in comparison with standard workload scheduling model.
