A commonplace issue with portable technology is battery efficiency. While many industries are trying their best to improve battery life without sacrificing a product's quality and efficiency, we believe that further can be done to improve battery consumption on one's mobile device-from tablets to smartphones to laptops to everything else. Many applications on these devices are based on a microservice architecture. In this article, we introduce a new algorithm KaliGreen that can maneuver the microservices within a network of devices in order to maximize the run-time of a microservice-based application; moreover, KaliGreen allows a 54% increase in the average run-time of an application by shifting microservices from 6 devices (as example) with low battery or inefficient processing ratios to devices in better conditions. To achieve this, KaliGreen utilizes KaliMucho middleware, which is able manipulate microservices in run-time. This algorithm provides a plausible solution to maximizing energy consumption within a network of devices.
