Abstract

Energy consumption in data centers can be reduced by efficient design of the data centers and efficient management of computing resources and cooling units. A major obstacle in the analysis of data centers is the lack of a holistic simulator, where the impact of new computing resource (or cooling) management techniques can be tested with diffierent designs (i.e., layouts and configurations) of data centers. To fill this gap, this paper proposes Green Data Center Simulator (GDCSim) for studying the energy efficiency of data centers under various data center geometries, workload characteristics, platform power management schemes, and scheduling algorithms. GDCSim is used to iteratively design green data centers. Further, it is validated against established CFD simulators. GDCSim is developed as a part of the BlueTool infrastructure project at Impact Lab.
