GreenLSI helps MásMóvil to save energy

The researchers in GreenLSI, led by José M. Moya, are modelling the energy consumption and temperature evolution of multiple servers from MásMóvil when executing typical cloud applications. As each server behaves differently, and modeling its behavior requires multiple intrusive experiments, the availability of a large amount of servers is a great […]

Energy efficiency in data centers

Energy efficiency in Data Centers (DCs) is nowadays a major challenge because of its economic and environmental impact. The numbers regarding DC power consumption are outstanding: They are responsible for about 1.3% of worldwide energy production In USA alone, they consume more than 80 mill MWh/year, which means the consumption of 1,5 […]

Invited talk at Universidad de Almería

On November 16th, our colleague Marina Zapater presented an invited talk at the “Grupo de investigación Supercomputación – Algoritmos” of Universidad de Almería, in Spain. The title of the talk was “Modeling and Optimization techniques to improve the energy efficiency of Data Centers”, and was followed by a discussion between […]

Presentation at PACT 2015

Recently, our colleague Patricia Arroba presented our latest research on energy efficiency in Cloud computing in the international conference PACT’15 that was held in San Francisco (CA). Nowadays, data centers consume about 2% of the worldwide energy production, originating more than 43 million tons of CO2 per year. Cloud providers […]

Presentation at IEEE CLOUD 2015

Last June, Ignacio Aransay traveled to New York (USA) to present our latest work on energy efficiency in Cloud computing and Trust-and-Reputation Systems in the international conference IEEE CLOUD 2015. The increasing success of Cloud Computing applications and online services has contributed to the unsustainability of data center facilities in […]
