CURRENT RESEARCH ACTIVITY

My current research work focuses on the area of Energy-aware Management for Modern Distributed Computing Systems. I'm a member of the High Performance Computing Group at the Computer Architecture Department (DAC). I'm also an associate researcher at the Autonomic Systems and eBusiness Platforms research line in the Barcelona Supercomputing Center (BSC), where I lead the Energy-aware Computing area. Our goal is to develop management algorithms for virtualised Data Centres in a large-scale distributed ecosystem running heterogeneous workloads that optimize their operation with respect to energy and ecological efficiency. We work on the following topics:

  • Models for the assessment and forecasting of energy and ecological efficiency in a virtualised Data Centre at different levels
  • Policies for the optimization of the scheduling and placement of Virtual Machines (VMs) in physical nodes considering the energy and ecological efficiency factors
  • Policies for the selection of Data Centre for remote placement of Virtual Machines (VMs) in a Data Centre ecosystem considering the energy and ecological efficiency factors
  • Integration of the cooling and power supply subsystems in the energy management strategy of Data Centres
  • Integration of renewable energy sources in the energy management strategy of Data Centres
