Towards Dynamic Voltage/Frequency Scaling for Power Reduction in Data Centers
Higher power consumption in data centers results in more heat dissipation, cooling costs and degrades the system reliability. Conventional power reduction techniques such as dynamic voltage/frequency scaling (DVS/DFS) have disadvantages when they are ported to current data centers with virtualization deployments. In this paper, we give a short survey and discussion on some issues and aspects of DVS/DFS in data centers. This paper also presents a simple comparison of four power management schemes in virtualization environments.
