Optimized management of data centers

CMA project manager: Sophie DEMASSEY
 

The high energy consumption of data centers is increasing in line with their rapid expansion. Although technological progress has made it easier to master this consumption, astute operational management solutions are also required to bring down the energy bill while maintaining a high level of service for users.

The CMA is working on devising this kind of solution in partnership with the SCALE team at Nice Sophia Antipolis University as part of the EU project DC4Cities (www.dc4cities.eu).

The constraint programming model developed adapts the functioning of tasks over a one-day time horizon depending on both the variable production forecast of renewable energy sources and the level of service contractually required by customers. These conflicting criteria are brought together in the single target of minimizing energy costs and financial penalties connected to the service.
