Optimization Algorithms for Large-scale, Thermal-aware Storage Systems


Funding Agency 

National Science Foundation


Associate Professor Ankur Srivastava (ECE/ISR) is a co-PI for a three-year, $900K National Science Foundation grant, "Optimization Algorithms for Large-scale, Thermal-aware Storage Systems." Professor Samir Khuller (CS/UMIACS) is the principal investigator, while Assistant Professor Amol Deshpande (CS/UMIACS) also is a co-PI. The researchers will investigate optimization problems that arise when managing the thermal requirements of very large data storage centers. This project seeks to develop a general science of thermal management for large scale storage systems, by focusing on thermal modeling and management at different levels of the system hierarchy.
