Today's information and communications technology (ICT) services emit an increasing amount of greenhouse gases. Carbon footprint models can enable research into ICT energy efficiency and carbon reduction. The GreenStar Network (GSN) testbed is a prototype wide-area network of data centers powered by renewable energy sources. Through their work developing the GSN, the authors have researched fundamental aspects of green ICT such as virtual infrastructure, unified management of compute, network, power, and climate resources, smart power control, and a carbon assessment protocol.
