Thermal-aware Scheduling in Green Data centers
By Teck Chaw Ling, PhD
Professor, University of Malaya
Data centers can go green by saving electricity in two major areas: computing and cooling. Servers in data centers require a constant supply of cold air from on-site cooling mechanism for reliability.
Increased computational load makes servers to dissipate more power as heat and eventually amplifies the cooling load. In thermal-aware scheduling, computations are scheduled with the objective of reducing data center wide thermal gradient, hotspots and cooling magnitude. Complemented by heat modeling; and thermal-aware monitoring and profiling, this scheduling is energy efficient and economical.
Dr. Teck Chaw Ling is an Associate Professor at the Faculty of Computer Science and Information Technology, University of Malaya and also the chairperson of Malaysia Research and Education Network-MYREN Network & Distributed Systems Working Group . He was the Dean of ICT and Computational Science Research Cluster, University of Malaya from 2011- 2012. His research areas include Software Defined Networking, Green computing, Core network research, inter-domain Quality of Service (QoS), Voice over IP (VoIP), cloud computing, and network security. Dr Ling is also a certified Cisco Instructor trainer and has been invited to conduct network and security training in New Zealand, Vietnam, Cambodia, Laos and Myanmar by ITU, United Nations and USAID. Dr Ling was the Design Advisory Team member of Cisco System Inc. (USA).
