Energy-Aware Internet Routing

An Internet-routing algorithm that tracks electricity price fluctuations could save data-hungry companies such as Google, Microsoft, and Amazon millions of dollars each year in electricity costs. By rerouting data to locations where electricity prices are lowest on a particular day. A recently completed research reported Here.

Google Data Centers (US)

My Comments:
– A good idea economy wise.
– If the routing algorithm becomes publicly available/predictable, Would it be possible to predict where Google’s main Data will be located/redirected on a given day, making targeted attacks easier and more effective.

The Original MIT research paper is called ( Cutting the Electric Bill for Internet Scale Systems )
