Energy consumption of Cloud Computing has become one of the critical challenges of our modern computing facilities. At the same time, the proliferation of new usages related to Internet of Things (IoT) calls for more distributed cloud-related architectures, relying on resources deployed across and at the edge of the network. These emerging virtualized architectures, referred to as Fog, Edge and sometimes P2P computing infrastructures, aim at satisfying low latency and high bandwidth requirements expected by IoT-based applications. While there is no more debate on whether such infrastructures will be deployed, the question of their energy footprint has not been studied yet. In other words, by increasing the number of Cloud-related architectures, ranging from fully centralized to completely distributed, many Cloud researchers and providers are interested to know which infrastructure can be more energy efficient. This presentation tackles this issue introducing a new and generic energy model to accurately evaluate and compare the energy consumed by the Cloud-related architectures.
