P1922.1 - Standard for a method for calculating anticipated emissions caused by virtual machine migration and placement

The purpose of this standard is to assess anticipated emissions caused by a virtual machine migration and placement prior to the migration accomplishment. Thus, in the context of virtual machine migration management among several servers located in different regions and powered by different energy sources, this standard can be used: * to evaluate the anticipated emissions related to a VM migration to each available server; * to consider these emissions in the virtual migration strategy as a parameter to minimize (other parameters related to electricity price and quality of service can be considered as well).This standard specifies rules to calculate anticipated emissions caused by virtual machine (VM) migration and placement in geographically distributed locations supplied by different electricity sources. The method specified in this standard is used to determine anticipated marginal emissions from the electric grid due to the adaptation of its power generation capacity in response to an extra power demand from the server receiving the VM and the network supporting the migration of the VM. This standard provides a method to assess anticipated gaseous (including Greenhouse Gases) and particle emissions caused by VM migration and placement in distributed servers located in different regions.
