In cloud computing, the resources are provided as service over the internet on demand basis. The resources such as servers, networks, storage, applications are dynamically scaled and virtualized. The demand grows gradually for each virtual machine in a cloud computing environment over time. So, it is necessary to manage the resources under each cluster to match the demand in order to maximize total returns by minimizing the power consumption cost. It can be minimized by applying minimal virtual design, live migration and variable resource management. But, the traditional way of scheduling doesn't meet our expected requirements. So we introduce the distributive power migration and management algorithm for cloud environment that uses the resources in an effective and efficient manner ensuring minimal use of power. The proposed algorithm performs computation more efficiently in a scalable cloud computing environment. The results indicate that the algorithm reduces up to 30% of the power consumption to execute services. © 2014 Science Publications.
