Abstract

A large portion of the power consumption of data centers can be attributed to cooling. In dynamic thermal management mechanisms for data centers and servers, thermal setpoints are typically chosen statically and conservatively, which leaves significant room for improvement in the form of improved energy efficiency. In this paper, we propose two hierarchical thermal-aware power optimization techniques that are complementary to each other and achieve (i) lower overall system power with no performance penalty or (ii) higher performance within the same power budget.
