Profile-based application management for green data centres

Vasudevan, Meera (2016) Profile-based application management for green data centres. PhD thesis, Queensland University of Technology.


This thesis presents a profile-based application management framework for energy-efficient data centres. The framework is based on a concept of using Profiles that provide prior knowledge of the run-time workload characteristics to assign applications to virtual machines. The thesis explores the building of profiles for applications, virtual machines and servers from real data centre workload logs. This is then used to inform static and dynamic application assignment, and consolidation of applications.

Impact and interest:

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
