British, Chinese, and Austrian researchers say that more sustainable cloud computing systems can be achieved by algorithmically mimicking seagulls' hunting and migration behavior.
The researchers contend a "seagull optimization algorithm" can slash cloud computing's power consumption by 5.5% and its network traffic by 70%.
They said the meta-heuristic algorithm would determine the best locations for virtual machines within a server communications network to optimize network traffic efficiency.
This would mirror the seagulls' ability to stalk and plot a route to prey without colliding with each other.
The researchers believe seagull-based algorithms could reduce the total number of physical supercomputers worldwide, while also cutting the machine-to-machine communications network's power consumption by 80%.
