Integrated management of application performance, power and cooling in data centers
Abstract—Data centers contain IT, power and cooling infrastructures, each of which is typically managed independently. In this paper, we propose a holistic approach that couples the management of IT, power and cooling infrastructures to improve the efficiency of data center operations. Our approach considers application performance management, dynamic workload migration/consolidation, and power and cooling control to “right-provision” computing, power and cooling resources for a given workload. We have implemented a prototype of this for virtualized environments and conducted experiments in a production data center. Our experimental results demonstrate that the integrated solution is practical and can reduce energy consumption of servers by 35% and cooling by 15%, without degrading application performance.
