20 million to Cloud Computing

Erik Elmroth at umeå University

Energy-efficient computer resources which adapt its capacity to the needs of the application. This is the objective of the project “Cloud Control” which was recently awarded 20 million SEK from the Swedish Research Council. A group of researchers from Umeå and Lund under the leadership of professor Erik Elmroth from the Department of Computer Science at Umeå University, will develop methods and tools to handle resources and services in future computer centers with distributed systems of virtual machines.
The main goals of the project are:

  • to optimize the usage of servers
  • to predict the usage peaks for specific applications so that the number of virtual machines that are needed can adapt in time
  • to optimize the physical placement of the servers in order to reduce cooling requirements

The project will receive funding during five years.
