2012 International Conference on Energy Aware Computing
This paper introduces a method to accomplish
speciﬁc target loads in virtualization based data centers. Within the last few years, the development of data centers moved into high-grade ﬂexible architectures that adapt to the needs (by means of virtualization). This ﬂexibility can be used by load
management methods to minimize and also to manipulate the energy demand in order to adapt to price ﬂuctuations and to prevent demand peaks in power grid as well. We developed a method that is able to accomplish speciﬁc load proﬁle optimized for this. Estimations done show that the chosen approach satisﬁes this task very well.
