A Cloud-Based Framework for Green Software Design and Education

Green Computing

The ubiquitous use of computers and mobile devices has substantially increased the energy consumption of IT systems. Meanwhile, the energy footprint of data centers keeps increasing and the battery life of mobile devices is now a top concern. To address these energy challenges, green computing has become a focus and made significant strides over the past decade at the hardware and systems level. For example, renewable energy such as solar and wind is now used to power some of today’s supercomputers, and the average power usage of data centers has substantially decreased. While the energy efficiency of IT hardware is continually improving, the energy efficiency of software has not kept pace. Dr. Ziliang Zong is working to change this. Read More
