Background/Objectives: Cloud computing is a shared pool of configurable computer system resources and higher-level services. These services quickly configured over the Internet to achieve consistency and economies of scale. Methods/Statistical analysis: In this research, the DVFS (Dynamic Voltage and Frequency Scaling) mechanism is used to save energy in the cloud environment. In the existing work, MBFD has been used to check the resources in the physical machine. In case, if the resources are available, then the VM is placed over the PM. However, the problem is that the MBFD algorithm does not check the PM and hence result in higher energy consumption. Findings: In this paper, the MBFD algorithm is enhanced by using the concept of DVFS along with the concept of location-aware algorithm. Due to this algorithm, VM which is near to the server is executed first by measuring the distance. To measure the performance the parameters such as energy consumption and TCJ are measured. Improvements/Applications: The proposed framework reduced energy consumption and increased the total completed jobs.

Important Announcements

All the authors, conference coordinators, conveners, and guest editors kindly check their articles' originality before submitting them to IJCERT. If any material is found to be duplicate submission or sent to other journals when the content is in the process with IJCERT, fabricated data, cut and paste (plagiarized), at any stage of processing of material, IJCERT is bound to take the following actions.
1. Rejection of the article.
2. The author will be blocked for future communication with IJCERT if duplicate articles are submitted.
3. A letter regarding this will be posted to the Principal/Director of the Institution where the study was conducted.
4. A List of blacklisted authors will be shared among the Chief Editors of other prestigious Journals
We have been screening articles for plagiarism with a world-renowned tool: Turnitin However, it is only rejected if found plagiarized. This more stern action is being taken because of the illegal behavior of a handful of authors who have been involved in ethical misconduct. The Screening and making a decision on such articles costs colossal time and resources for the journal. It directly delays the process of genuine materials.
