Bin Packing with Linear Usage Costs - An Application to Energy Management in Data Centres

EnergeTIC is a recent industrial research project carried out in Grenoble on optimizing energy consumption in data-centres. The efficient management of a data-centre involves minimizing energy costs while ensuring service quality. We study the problem formulation proposed by EnergeTIC. First, we focus on a key sub-problem: a bin packing problem with linear… CONTINUE READING
