Data Center Server Provision: Distributed Asynchronous Control for Coupled Renewal Systems

Abstract

This paper considers a cost minimization problem for data centers with $N$ servers and randomly arriving service requests. A central router decides which server to use for each new request. Each server has three types of states active, idle, and setup with different costs and time durations. The servers operate asynchronously over their own states and can… (More)
