Métodos de Optimização Discreta para Gestão Energética (DOME)

Type: National Project

Duration: from 2018 Oct 01 to 2021 Sep 30

Financed by: FCT

Prime Contractor: INESC-ID (Other)

The DOME project tackles the issue of energy management in data centers. One of the goals is to minimize the energy consumption, while new requests of computational services (such as new virtual machines) are processed. However, energy minimization strategies conflict with other objectives such as load balance of servers or avoiding areas of high heat dissipation inside the data center. The DOME project will develop new computational models and tools for the data center management. These tools must capture the inter-dependence of the multiple factors involved in the management of data centers. Therefore, this project will also provide new multi-criteria optimization models, as well as analysis tools for energy management.
