Scholarship Description: The Synchromedia Lab  at the Ecole de Technologie Superieur (University of Quebec) is seeking for a PhD candidate with a specialty in resource management in cloud.Reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions caused by the extremely widespread use of computing and telecommunications services in many sectors of the economy is one of the most challenging research topics in the Information and Communications Technologies (ICT) community. A promising trend to increase energy efficiency, and hence reduce GHG footprint, is through cloud computing. Based on virtualization, it reshapes the future of ICT services by enabling several heterogeneous tenants to co-exist and efficiently share the same physical infrastructure.The Green Telco Cloud project, supported by Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council (NSERC) of Canada and Ericsson, is aimed at developing the first cloud model that supports large-scale Telco applications.The work will be based on OpenGSN, an open-source cloud middleware that empowers the first carbon neutral network of data centers in the world . The PhD thesis will involve virtualization of facility resources, like climate control and power source, modeling automated measurements in cloud, and development of software tools for controlling humidity and temperature. Patterns and models characterizing heating emissions of Telco cloud components and applications will need to be built, as well as contextual relationships between resource requirements and power consumption.
