The Second International Conference on
Parallel, Distributed, Grid and Cloud Computing for Engineering
Ajaccio, Corsica, France
12-15 April 2011
Special Session PARENG2011-S02:
High Performance Green Computing
organised by Prof. Pascal Bouvry
University of Luxembourg
and Prof. Samee Khan
North Dakota State University, USA
Over the last decade we have witnessed computing service providers to continually upgrade their infrastructures to high-performance computing systems that can meet the increasing demands of powerful newer applications. In parallel, almost in concert, computing manufacturers have consolidated and moved from stand-alone servers to rack mounted blades. The above mentioned trends alone are increasing electricity usage in large-scale computing systems, such as data centers, computational grids, and cloud computing. This increase in electricity utilization has reached to a point that many information technology managers are all up in arms to identify a holistic solution that can reduce electricity consumption (so that the total cost of operation is minimized) of their respective large-scale computing systems and simultaneously improve upon or maintain the current throughput of the system.
