Data Center Architecture

Overview
In the United States, enterprise data centers consumed 61 billion kilowatt-hours in 2006 – 1.5% of total US electricity consumption – more than all the nation's televisions combined. Our department has several efforts underway to improve data center energy efficiency, reliability, availability, and manageability. Specific research topics include novel energy-efficient processor architectures; system, cluster, and room-level power and thermal management; enterprise application benchmarking and performance analysis; memory and storage energy efficiency; virtualization and server consolidation; data-center-wide resource provisioning; capacity management; and system-level reliability.
