Algorithms for dynamic capacity provisioning


Data centre power consumption can be reduced by switching off servers during low load. However, excess switching is wasteful. This paper reviews online algorithms for optimizing this tradeoff, including the benefits of shifting load between geographically distant data centres. These algorithms can also adjust a link's number of parallel lightpaths.
