Data centers are energy-intensive facilities responsible for about 1% of total electricity consumption worldwide. Workload management is not a simple strategy and requires planning for a successful outcome. This presentation highlights the importance of understanding workloads and their management, their impact on energy consumption, and the physical environment of data centers, and reviews formulas to quantify them. Data center operators must understand, measure, and predict workloads to allocate them in an optimized way.


* Recognize the importance of understanding workloads and their management.
* Understand how workloads management impact on energy consumption and the physical environment of data centers.
* The goal is to implement a multi-objective optimization strategy for workload management.
