The Green Computing Book: Tackling Energy Efficiency at Large Scale (Chapman & Hall/CRC Computational Science)
State-of-the-Art Approaches to Advance the Large-Scale Green Computing MovementEdited by one of the founders and lead investigator of the Green500 list, The Green Computing Book: Tackling Energy Efficiency at Large Scale explores seminal research in large-scale green computing. It begins with low-level, hardware-based approaches and then traverses up the software stack with increasingly higher-level, software-based approaches.In the first chapter, the IBM Blue Gene team illustrates how to improve the energy efficiency of a supercomputer by an order of magnitude without any system performance loss in parallelizable applications. The next few chapters explain how to enhance the energy efficiency of a large-scale computing system via compiler-directed energy optimizations, an adaptive run-time system, and a general prediction performance framework. The book then explores the interactions between energy management and reliability and describes storage system organization that maximizes energy efficiency and reliability. It also addresses the need for coordinated power control across different layers and covers demand response policies in computing centers. The final chapter assesses the impact of servers on data center costs.

Neben wirtschaftlicher und sozialen Dimension unternehmerischen Handelns kommt der Wirtschaftsinformatik auch im Bereich der ökologischen Dimension eine herausragende Rolle zu. Sie ist zum einen dafür verantwortlich, Energieeffizienz und Nachhaltigkeit bei der Gestaltung von Informationsinfrastrukturen maßgeblich zu berücksichtigen, zum anderen nimmt sie eine Schlüsselrolle ein, wenn es darum geht, in anderen Unter-nehmensbereichen und ganzen Wertschöpfungsnetzwerken durch Nutzung von Optimierungspotenzialen Ressourcenschonung und Energieeffizienz herbeizuführen. Zudem ist sie zuständig dafür, eine der ökologischen Dimension Rechnung tragende Informationslogistik bereitzustellen und durch betriebliche Umweltinformationssysteme aktiv zu unterstützen. BUIS stellen eine notwendige Voraussetzung für die erfolgreiche Etablierung eines betrieblichen Nachhaltigkeitsmanagements in Unternehmen dar. Durch systematische Erfassung, Verarbeitung und Bereitstellung umweltrelevanter Informationen unterstützen sie die informatorische Absicherung unternehmerischer Entscheidungen und bilden die Basis für eine entsprechende Kommunikation und Berichterstattung.
