Abstract

Energy consumed by computation and cooling represents the greatest percentage of the average energy consumed in a data centre. As these two aspects are not always coordinated, energy consumption is not optimised. Data centres lack an integrated system that jointly optimises and controls all the operations in order to reduce energy consumption and increase the usage of renewable sources. GENiC is addressing this through a novel scalable, integrate energy management and control platform for data centre wide optimisation. We have implemented and prototype of the platform together with workload and thermal management algorithms. We evaluate the algorithms in a simulation based model of a real data centre. Results show significant energy savings potential, in some cases up to 40%, by integrating workload and thermal management.
