Anne-Cécile Orgerie's seminar: "Energy consumption and environmental impact of computing centers
Computing centers are becoming increasingly large, with digital services hosted all over the world and often belonging to complex systems, which themselves use many other services and hardware resources. With this increase comes an alarming growth in digital infrastructure and its energy consumption. Despite the complexity of these systems, it is important to understand how they consume energy in order to chase wasted joules. This talk will discuss measuring the energy consumption of Cloud infrastructures, deriving models from these measurements, and implementing these models in simulation tools that can be used to assess their energy consumption and estimate their environmental impact.
