Project Energy Efficient Database Management Systems Essay

1700 Words7 Pages
Abstract— Energy is a growing component of the operational cost for many data intensive deployments. A large number of efforts have been made in the field of energy efficient computing at various levels ranging from individual hardware components, system software and to applications.
In this paper, I have described the concept of energy efficiency problem and recent techniques to design energy efficient database management systems. I have broadly classified recent research into three categories: hardware based, software based and cluster based database designs. Last section of paper includes a description of power models used for evaluation of energy efficiency solutions.
Section 1
Data center industry supporting internet has become world 's largest consumer of energy. In 2013, nearly three million computer rooms in US used enough energy to power all the households in New York for two years, equivalent to the annual output of 34 large coal fired power plants[1]. Direct monthly energy costs for data centers make up around 23% of the total amortized monthly operating costs [19].
This data revolution has led to an exponential growth in digital data making database management systems (DBMS) one of the major energy consumers in data centers. Enterprise server systems reportedly operated on over 9 zettabytes (1 zettabyte = 1021 bytes) of data in 2008 [2], with data volumes doubling every 12 to 18 months. Businesses such as Amazon and Wal-Mart heavily rely
