Title (EN) METHOD AND SYSTEM FOR OPTIMIZING THE LOCATION OF DATA CENTERS OR POINTS OF PRESENCE AND SOFTWARE COMPONENTS IN CLOUD COMPUTING NETWORKS USING A TABU SEARCH ALGORITHM
(FR) PROCÉDÉ ET SYSTÈME D'OPTIMISATION DE LOCALISATION DE CENTRES DE DONNÉES OU DE POINTS D'OCCUPATION ET COMPOSANTS LOGICIELS DANS UN RÉSEAU INFORMATIQUE EN NUAGE UTILISANT UN ALGORITHME DE RECHERCHE TABOU
Abstract:
(EN) The ubiquity of cloud applications requires the meticulous design of cloud networks with high quality of service, low costs, and low CO2 emissions. The present invention relates to a method and system for optimizing the locations of cloud data centers or points of presence and software components while simultaneously finding the information routing and network link capacities by using an extremely efficient tabu search heuristic. The objectives are to optimize the network performance, the CO2 emissions, the capital expenditures (CAPEX), and the operational expenditures (OPEX). The problem is modeled using a mixed-integer programming model and solved with both an optimization solver and a tabu search heuristic.
(FR) L'ubiquité des applications dans le nuage nécessite une conception méticuleuse des réseaux en nuage ayant une haute qualité de service, des coûts bas et des émissions en CO2 basses. La présente invention concerne un procédé et un système permettant l'optimisation des localisations de centres de données en nuage ou de points d'occupation ainsi que des composants logiciels tout en trouvant simultanément les capacités de routage d'information et de liaison réseau en utilisant une euristique de recherche tabou extrêmement efficace. Les objectifs sont d'optimiser la performance du réseau, les émissions en CO2, les dépenses d'investissement de capital (CAPEX), et les dépenses d'exploitation (OPEX). Le problème est modélisé en utilisant un modèle de programmation partiellement en nombres entiers, et il est résolu avec à la fois un solveur d'optimisation et une euristique de recherche tabou.
