FIT4Green – Aims and Goals

The Fit4Green initative is aiming at a contribution towards the reduction of ICT energy.

One of the means to reach this goal is the creation of an energy-aware layer of plug-ins for data centre automation frameworks. This should help improve the energy efficiency of currently existing IT solution strategies and help in the recudition and minimization of the general power consumption.

The following list summarizes FIT4Green scientific and technical objectives:

  • Research on energy aware extensions to business models and SLAs for whole IT solutions
  • Design of the system architecture for “smart ICT” solutions based on the single and federated site’s real world technological and business requirements
  • Research and development of energy consumptions models of the integrated full chain of components in an IT solutions, including client, servers and network equipments
  • Research and development of energy aware deployment optimization policies, considering the differences between sites of federated data centres
  • Development of energy control mechanisms, as modular plug-in for the data centre automation frameworks of the pilot sites (but designed to be extensible to any framework), to integrate energy consumption models and optimization policies for the different computing styles both in single and federated configuration.
