• Energy-efficient cloud resource management 

      Dabbagh, Mehiar; Hamdaoui, Bechir; Guizani, Mohsen; Rayes, Ammar ( IEEE , 2014 , Conference Paper)
      We propose a resource management framework that reduces energy consumption in cloud data centers. The proposed framework predicts the number of virtual machine requests along with their amounts of CPU and memory resources, ...
    • Overcoming user selfishness in DSA systems through credit-based resource allocation 

      Alshammari, Tamara; Hamdaoui, Bechir; Guizani, Mohsen; Rayes, Ammar ( IEEE , 2014 , Conference Paper)
      We propose a credit-based resource allocation technique for wireless systems with dynamic spectrum access (DSA) capability, such as multichannel wireless sensor networks. The proposed technique is robust against selfish ...
    • Release-time aware VM placement 

      Dabbagh, Mehiar; Hamdaoui, Bechir; Guizani, Mohsen; Rayes, Ammar ( IEEE , 2014 , Conference Paper)
      Consolidating virtual machines (VMs) on as few physical machines (PMs) as possible so as to turn into sleep as many PMs as possible can make significant energy savings in cloud centers. Although traditional online bin ...
