We describe a new approach to minimize the power used by servers and computer room air conditioners (CRACs) in data centers by controlling them in an integrated way. This approach consists of air conditioning control using a new thermal model to keep inlet temperatures of servers under certain limits and allocation control of virtual machines (VMs) for(More)
INTRODUCTION The purpose of this study was to evaluate the feasibility of a contrast medium (CM), radiation dose reduction protocol for cerebral bone-subtraction CT angiography (BSCTA) using 80-kVp and sinogram-affirmed iterative reconstruction (SAFIRE). METHODS Seventy-five patients who had undergone BSCTA under the 120- (n = 37) or the 80-kVp protocol(More)
