Performance and power issues are becoming increasingly important in the design of large data centers for supporting a multitude of services. There are many perspectives of addressing these issues using various computer science principles. In this paper, the author will discuss the applications of data mining techniques to manage power and performance in data centers. Although, the use of data mining in designing performance centric and energy efficient of computer systems is still in its infancy, the author will elaborate on how researchers are exploiting data mining and machine learning approaches to save energy and improve the performance of computer systems ranging from laptops to large data centers.
