A general framework for performance guaranteed green data center networking
MetadataShow full item record
From the perspective of resource allocation and routing, this paper aims to save as much energy as possible in data center networks. We present a general framework, based on the blocking island paradigm, to try to maximize the network power conservation and minimize sacrifices of network performance and reliability. The bandwidth allocation mechanism together with power-aware routing algorithm achieve a bandwidth guaranteed tighter network. Besides, our fast efficient heuristics for allocating bandwidth enable the system to scale to large sized data centers. The evaluation result shows that up to more than 50% power savings are feasible while guaranteeing network performance and reliability.
