Cloud computing clusters distributed computers to provide applications as services and on-demand resources over Internet. From the perspective of average and total energy consumption, such consolidated resource enhances the energy efficiency on both clients and servers. However, cloud computing has a different power consumption pattern from the traditional storage oriented Internet services. The computation oriented implementation of cloud service broadens the gap between the peak power demand and base power demand of a data center. A higher peak demand implies the need of feeder capacity expansion, which requires a considerable investment. This study proposes a computation related approach to lessen the increasing power demand of cloud service data centers. Through appropriated designs, some frequently used computing algorithms can be performed by either clients or servers. As a model presented in this paper, such client-server balanced computation resource integration suggests an energy-efficient and cost-effective cloud service data center.
