Energy consumption is becoming a serious issue for data centers. Minimizing the energy consumption of a data center is a complex problem. It consists of developing energy models for servers and network elements and investigating energy-aware (green) routing strategies using these models. In this paper, we adapt energy models for servers and network elements in a data center. The server energy model incorporates the impact of temperature and voltage of a server on its leakage energy. Using the… CONTINUE READING
