Intel, Dell, VMware Policy-based, Cloud Power Management DesignPolicy Based Power Management with Dell and VMwareTo support the evolution to the cloud, Intel works with end users to create an open data center roadmap of usage models that address key IT pain points for more secure, efficient, and simple cloud architectures built on a foundation of transparency. This paper describes a policy power management reference architecture based on Intel, VMware, and Dell solutions. Policy power management refers to usage models aimed at power efficiency.The goal of policy management usage models is to optimize productivity per watt in order to reduce total cost of ownership. Requirements include the capacity to monitor and cap power in real time at server, rack, zone, and data center levels. This means the ability to manage aggregated power, consumption within a rack, zone, or data center based on available power and cooling resources. Load migration policies based on power consumption and cooling resources bring further benefits.In this reference architecture we used Intel® Intelligent Power Node Manager and Intel® Data Center Manager (Intel® DCM) to provide power saving through dynamic migration of workloads to fewer servers during periods of low resource utilization and through deactivation of unneeded hosts.
