Provides in-depth treatment of energy efficiencyideas based on fundamental heattransfer, fluid mechanics, thermodynamics, controls, and computer science
Focuses on multiple broad approaches that canyield significant improvements in data center energy efficiency
Contains comprehensive coverage of all aspectsof thermal management in data centers
Features an introduction to real-time allocationof computing loads in virtualized environments and cloud computing
Energy Efficient Thermal Management of Data Centers examines energy flow in today's data centers. Particular focus is given to the state-of-the-art thermal management and thermal design approaches now being implemented across the multiple length scales involved. The impact of future trends in information technology hardware, and emerging software paradigms such as cloud computing and virtualization, on thermal management are also addressed. The book explores computational and experimental characterization approaches for determining temperature and air flow patterns within data centers. Thermodynamic analyses using the second law to improve energy efficiency are introduced and used in proposing improvements in cooling methodologies. Reduced-order modeling and robust multi-objective design of next generation data centers are discussed. This book also:
