These centers provision thousands of dense servers within a relatively small real-estate in order to host the applications/services of different customers who may have been assured by a service-level agreement (SLA). Power consumption of these servers is becoming a serious concern in the design and operation of the hosting centers. The effects of high power consumption manifest not only in the costs spent in designing effective cooling systems to ward off the generated heat, but in the cost of electricity consumption itself. It is crucial to deploy power management strategies in these hosting centers to lower these costs towards enhancing profitability. At the same time, techniques for power management that include shutting down these servers and/or modulating their operational speed, can impact the ability of the hosting center to meet SLAs.
