Resolving data center power bill disputesIn this paper we challenge the common evaluation practices used for Virtual Machine (VM) consolidation, such as simulation and small testbeds, which fail to capture the fundamental trade-off between energy consumption and performance. We identify a number of over-simplifying assumptions which are typically made about the energy consumption and performance characteristics of modern networked systems. In response, we describe how more accurate models for data-center systems can be designed and used in order to create an evaluation framework that allows the more reliable exploration of the energy-performance trade-off for VM consolidation strategies.

About Angelos Chatzipapas

I received my Computer Engineering and Informatics degree in the university of Patras (Greece) in July 2006. Then, I did my MSc Communication Engineering degree in RWTH-Aachen (Germany). Furthermore, I obtained a second M.Sc. in Cryptography, Security, Systems and Network from Polytech' Nice - Sophia Antipolis (France). I have also worked for telecom Bretagne (Rennes, France) and INRIA Sophia Antipolis (France).
