We introduce and evaluate an automated technique for dynamically provisioning server capacity in a data center that caters to on-line services. Shortterm load prediction is used to realize an effective energy-aware data center load balancing technique that achieves significant energy savings without compromising the delivered performance. In our heterogeneous datacenter consisting of 150 Linux servers, the load balancer is able to achieve a 30.8% reduction in overall server energy consumption…

Virtual Melting Temperature: Managing Server Load to Minimize Cooling Overhead with Phase Change Materials
TLDR
VMT is proposed, a thermal aware job placement technique that adds an active, tunable component to enable greater control over datacenter thermal output and reduces peak cooling load by up to 12.8% to provide over two million dollars in cost savings when a smaller cooling system is installed.
An Experimental Analysis of Hot Aisle Containment Systems
In recent years, various airflow containment systems have been deployed in data centers to improve the cooling efficiency by minimizing the mixing of hot and cold air streams. The goal of this study

Energy-Aware Load Direction for Servers: A Feasibility Study
TLDR
This work proposes an automated technique for allocating workload to servers to operate the fewest number of servers that are needed to cope with the instantaneous workload, leaving some headroom for workload surges.
AutoScale: Dynamic, Robust Capacity Management for Multi-Tier Data Centers
TLDR
A dynamic capacity management policy, AutoScale, is introduced that greatly reduces the number of servers needed in data centers driven by unpredictable, time-varying load, while meeting response time SLAs and robustness.

TLDR
Experimental results using realistic dynamic workloads based on the TPC-W benchmark show that exploiting multiple sleep states results in significant additional cluster-wide energy savings up to 23% with little or no performance degradation.
Energy-Efficient Real-Time Heterogeneous Server Clusters
TLDR
A cluster-wide QoS-aware technique that dynamically reconfigures the cluster to reduce energy consumption during periods of reduced load is presented and results show it is possible to save up to 45% of the total energy consumed by the servers.
Towards energy proportionality for large-scale latency-critical workloads
TLDR
PEGASUS is presented, a feedback-based controller that significantly improves the energy proportionality of WSC systems, as demonstrated by a real implementation in a Google search cluster.
SleepScale: Runtime joint speed scaling and sleep states management for power efficient data centers
TLDR
This paper presents SleepScale, a runtime power management tool designed to efficiently exploit existing power control mechanisms, and evaluates it using workload traces from data centers to achieve significant power savings relative to conventional power management strategies.
