Collective Energy-Efficiency Approach to Data Center Networks Planning
Abstract—Collective Energy-Efficiency Approach to Data Center Networks Planning.Energy efficiency of data centers DCs < Final Year Projects 2016 > has become a major concern as DCs continue to grow large often hosting tens of thousands of servers or even hundreds of thousands of them. Clearly, such a volume of DCs implies scale of data center network (DCN) with a huge number of network nodes and links. The energy consumption of this communication network has skyrocketed and become the same league as computing servers’ costs. With the ever-increasing amount of data that < Final Year Projects 2016 >need to be stored and processed in DCs, DCN traffic continues to soar drawing increasingly more power.In particular, more than one-third of the total energy in DCs is consumed by communication links, switching and aggregation elements.
