Asfandyar Qureshi- Power-Demand Routing in Massive Geo-Distributed Systems
Abstract for 'Power-Demand Routing in Massive Geo-Distributed Systems' : There is an increasing trend toward massive, geographically distributed systems. The largest Internet companies operate hundreds of thousands of servers in multiple geographic locations, and are growing at a fast clip. A single system's servers and data centers can consume many megawatts of electricity, as much as tens of thousands of US homes. Two important concerns have arisen: rising electric bills; and growing carbon footprints.
