Green Data Center Networks and Energy-awareJob Scheduling
ETIS Lab (https://www-etis.ensea.fr) in Cergy-Pontoise is seeking for a PhD candidate with a specialty in algorithms and network protocols in green data center infrastructure.
Nowadays, power consumption of data centers has huge impacts on environments. Researchers are seeking to nd eective solutions to make data centers reduce power consumption while keep the desired quality of service or service level objectives. Basically, the energy consumption in data centers can be reduced by two means: (a) ecient design of the data centers in terms of cooling  or use of renewable sources of energy ; and (b) intelligent resource management and design of energy-aware network
protocols. The most prominent \green" alternative therefore is to use renewable energy sources and then to adapt the network architecture and to optimize network job scheduling within the data center by taking into account both energy-consumption and quality of service constraints, like for instance in .
The PhD candidate will address all aspects of the network protocol design for green data centers, including algorithms design, protocol design and prototyping, with a particular emphasis on the tradeoff between the network protocols and architectures and the energy consumption.
