Paper on power-aware data center management accepted to GRID 2011

The paper "Adaptive Scheduling on Power-Aware Managed Data-Centers using Machine Learning" by Josep Ll. Berral, Ricard Gavaldà and Jordi Torres has been accepted for presentation at the GRID 2011 conference, one of the leading conferences on data center infrastructure and management.

The paper presents new method, based on the combination of mathematical modelling, constraint programming, and machine learning to optimize the allocation of data center resources to webserver-like tasks that takes into account not only the standard metrics of performance but also Service-Level-Agreement satisfaction and power consumption.

It is a key part of Josep Lluis' thesis on the application of machine learning techniques to energy-aware data center management and Green Computing.
