  title={Optimal Fan Speed Control for Thermal Management of Servers},
  author={Zhikui Wang and Cullen Bash and Niraj H Tolia and Manish Marwah and Xiaoyun Zhu and Parthasarathy Ranganathan},
Improving the cooling efficiency of servers has become an essential requirement in data centers today as the power used to cool the servers has become an increasingly large component of the total power consumption. Additionally, fan speed control has emerged in recent years as a critical part of system thermal architecture. However, the state of the art in server fan control often results in over provisioning of air flow that leads to high fan power consumption. It can be exacerbated in server… CONTINUE READING
