Abstract: Cloud computing is one of the most popular computational models, which requires plenty of physical devices where services are provided based on user demand. A majority of data centres need plenty of energy consumption which has become a challenge in recent years. Regarding cloud video surveillance - as a contemporary research field of cloud computing and big data, the service, due to the high demand for monitoring remote places, continually consumes surplus energy to process the high-volume data. This study considers the importance of energy consumption in cloud video surveillance, and it has been tried to increase the efficiency of servers concerning energy usage. The proposed method employs virtual machine placement in two steps, including monitoring and placement, to reduce energy consumption and increase the efficiency of servers. Implementation results in Cloudsim showed that it reduces energy consumption and increases resource efficiency.

Keywords: cloud video surveillance; virtual machine placement; energy.
