Intelligent Placement of Datacenters for Internet Services
—Popular Internet services are hosted by multiple geographically distributed datacenters. The location of the datacenters has a direct impact on the services’ response times, capital and operational costs, and (indirect) carbon dioxide emissions. Selecting a location involves many important considerations, including its proximity to population centers, power plants, and network backbones; the source of the electricity in the region; the electricity, land, and water prices at the location; and the average temperatures at the location. As there can be many potential locations and many issues to consider for each of them, the selection process can be extremely involved and time-consuming. In this paper, we focus on the selection process and its automation. Specifically, we propose a framework that formalizes the process as a non-linear cost optimization problem, and approaches for solving the problem. Based on the framework, we characterize areas across the United States as potential...
