SHIP: Scalable Hierarchical Power Control for Large-Scale Data Centers

Date Added: Dec 2009
Format: PDF

In today's data centers, precisely controlling server power consumption is an essential way to avoid system failures caused by power capacity overload or overheating due to increasingly high server density. While various power control strategies have been recently proposed, existing solutions are not scalable to control the power consumption of an entire large-scale data center, because these solutions are designed only for a single server or a rack enclosure.
