In this paper, we propose a novel energy-efficient architecture for software-defined data center infrastructures. In our proposed data center architecture, we include an exhaust heat reuse system that utilizes high-temperature exhaust heat from servers in conditioning humidity and air temperature of office space near the data center. To obtain(More)
In recent years, IP-based virtual private networks (IP-VPNs), which provide a virtual privately owned network over an IP network, have attracted attention. With existing IP-VPNs, however, there is a serious problem that fairness among IP-VPN customers is not satisfied. In this paper, we first discuss design objectives of a control mechanism for achieving(More)
We proposed a workload assignment policy for reducing power consumption by air conditioners in data centers. Power consumption was estimated by computational fluid dynamics for both the conventional equipment arrangement and the tandem arrangement newly developed to reuse the exhaust heat from servers. To reduce the air conditioner power consumption by(More)
In our previous work, we have proposed a new VPN architecture for enabling user-based multiply associated VPNs. In this paper, we implement a prototype system of a VPN that enables users to be associated with multiple VPNs using existing network technologies for demonstrating the feasibility of our architecture and for clarifying the service image of a(More)
To decrease the power consumption of data centers, coordinated control of air conditioners and task assignment on servers is crucial. It takes tens of minutes for changes of operational parameters of air conditioners including outlet air temperature and volume to be actually reflected in the temperature distribution in the whole data center. Proactive(More)
We propose a novel network model for real-time prediction of temperature distribution in a data center so as to allow energy-efficient task assignment and facility management. We model various physical relationships in the data center as a network, including heat movements caused by airflow and heat generation by servers. Since changes in temperature(More)
The significant continuous increase in the power consumption of data centers, brought about by the adoption of cloud computing, is a major social problem. Moreover, the demand for data centers is expected to grow owing to the increasing requirement for data processing related to Internet of Things (IoT) applications. Consequently, reducing the power(More)
