Title: Models for Simulation and Numerical Analysis of Trade-offs in Data Centres with Power Management
Due to the growth in energy consumption of data centres, optimal usage of servers has become a relevant topic. In the early design phases of data centres insight can be provided into the power-performance trade-off that arises from power management. A flexible set of stochastic Petri net models for numerical analysis and a mixture of agent-based and discrete-event simulation models are proposed and used to easily study the power-performance trade-off given a stream of jobs and a data centre configuration with power management.
