The Fit4green solution relies on energy-saving optimisation algorithms which the project partners developed using data collected from a variety of real data centres.
Finest Data Centres Ecosystem
Saving 10% energy on top of existing strategies
Up to 20% during certain periods
All4Green broadens the scope of energy savings to the full ecosystem in which data centres operate, instead of focusing on the energy optimization of single ICT elements, or subsets of the ICT elements making up a data centre.
DC federation reducing energy transport needs from remote providers
avoid the 10% energy transport overheads
The novel approach proposed by All4Green specifically fosters collaboration between all entities in this ecosystem with the common goal of saving energy and emissions (hence the name of the project): ICT users deploying services in the data centre, electrical power providers, and data centres cooperating in a federated way.
Temporary 10% - 20% reduction of the data centre energy demand
The project will demonstrate that this collaboration is not only beneficial for the environment, but also economically sustainable, and therefore not limited to customers with a strong green/ecological conscience.
Energy Efficient Data Centers
The paper entitled "Modelling and Analysing the Power Consumption of Idle Servers" that was accepted in sustainIT 2012 received the "Best Paper" award.
Today All4Green launched the preparations for the 3nd International Workshop on Energy Efficient Data Centres E^2DC. This workshop aims at joining forces of academia and industry to lower the environmental impact of data centres. It will be held on 10 Jun 2014 in collocation with the ACM e-Energy 2014, the Fifth International Conference on Future Energy Systems, Cambridge, UK.
The main focus of the workshop is to present and discuss European initiatives related to energy-efficiency in data centers, including both infrastructure and software oriented solutions.
Today All4Green launched the preparations for the 2nd International Workshop on Energy Efficient Data Centres E^2DC. This workshop aims at joining forces of academia and industry to lower the environmental impact of data centres. It will be held on 21 May 2013 in collocation with the acm e-Energy conference in Berkeley, CA.
