G-Lab_Ener-G - Improving the Sustainability of G-Lab Through Increased Energy Efficiency
The energy consumption of IT and communication infrastructure is dramatically increasing. The main goal of G-Lab_Ener-G is to explore the energy-efficient operation of future IT and communication infrastructures through the exploration and optimization of the G-Lab infrastructure. The Future Internet and its infrastructures have to be structured in a way that inherently supports an energy-efficient operation.
A key technology to achieve energy efficiency is the virtualization and consolidation of communicational and computational resources. Based on energy consumption models for different components of the infrastructure an energy-aware, autonomous, and self-organizing monitoring and management of physical and virtual resources is developed. We analyze communication and application layer protocols regarding their support of an energy-efficient operation of G-Lab.
