BoF: HPC System and Data Center Energy Efficiency Metrics and Workloads

Date: Tuesday, November 18, 2014, 12:15 PM - 01:15 PM

Room: 294

Description: US legislation just passed requiring energy efficiency metrics for federal data centers. Without heavy lifting, the metric will be PUE. However, with PUEs approaching 1.1, PUE may have limited utility. Should and can we move on from PUE? This BoF discusses what's needed for driving the next level of improvement. It will also discuss advancing system-level energy efficiency workloads and metrics from the currently-used HPL FLOPS/Watt. The BoF will host a panel and field questions from the floor. Panelists will include experts in the field such as Erich Strohmaier, Top500 and LBNL and Michael Patterson, The Green Grid and Intel.
