Entropy : Datacenter energy optimization

Entropy is a software solution for energy management of data centers. It can dynamically manage applications for virtualized data centers to optimize their operations and reduce their energy consumption. This software solution has been developed by Fabien Hermenier and Jean Marc Menau from the Ecole des Mines de Nantes.


On the last year, 1 to 2% of global electricity production has been consumed by data centers, which employ 30 to 60% of their consumption to cool their servers.
