The GENiC Architecture for Integrated Data Centre Energy Management

View publication


We present an architecture for integrated data centre energy management developed in the EC funded GENiC project. The architecture was devised to create a platform that can integrate functions for workload management, cooling, power management and control of heat recovery for future, highly efficient data centres. The architecture is based on a distributed systems approach that allows the integration of components developed by several entities through defined interfaces and data formats. We also present use cases for the architecture, a brief description of the project's prototypical implementation, evaluation metrics and some lessons learned.
