Integrated Approach to Data Center Power Management

Energy accounts for a significant fraction of the operational costs of a data center, and data center operators are increasingly interested in moving towards low-power designs. Two distinct approaches have emerged towards achieving this end: the power proportional approach focuses on reducing disk and server power consumption, while the green data center approach focuses on reducing power consumed by support-infrastructure like cooling equipment, power distribution units, and power backup equipment. The authors propose an integrated approach, which combines the benefits of both.
