Federation of data centre sub-ecosystem
One of the new energy optimization directions addressed by the research scope of the All4Green project is improved workload control through collaborations between Data Centres, in the form of Data Centre Federations. Data Centres can federate and collaborate to exchange load among them, to meet short time power reduction request from power users, and also to collaboratively develop medium term plans that capitalize on the price and quality attributes of the energy offered by different power providers. A federation is a set of separately managed Data Centres, with a collaborative attitude governed by dynamic negotiations for controlling the energy consumption and CO2 emissions. From this standpoint, Data Centre Federations are collaboration-based decentralized energy ecosystems.
