Large, Internet based companies service user requests from multiple data centers located across the globe. These data centers often house a heterogeneous computing infrastructure and draw electricity from the local electricity market. Reducing the electricity costs of operating these data centers is a challenging problem, and in this work, we propose a novel solution which exploits both the data center heterogeneity and global electricity market diversity to reduce data center operating cost… CONTINUE READING
