Power management techniques for data centers: A survey

Abstract: With growing use of internet and exponential growth in amount of data to be stored and processed (known as' big data'), the size of data centers has greatly increased. This, however, has resulted in significant increase in the power consumption of the data centers. For this reason, managing power consumption of data centers has become essential. In this paper, we highlight the need of achieving energy efficiency in data centers and survey several recent architectural techniques designed for power management of data centers. ...
