Energy Minimization at All Layers of the Data Center: The ParaDIME Project

Conference on Design, Automation and Test in Europe.


The main objective of the ParaDIME project has been to minimize energy consumption at all levels of the data center. On the one hand, we have considered what can be achieved on currently existing systems, via improvements of the programming model and the runtime system. On the other hand, we investigated which techniques and design decisions can make future computing nodes more energy efficient. We have successfully proposed and developed several methodologies that enable up to 60% energy savings in data center’s components.
