ABSTRACT
We present an architecture for integrated data centre energy management developed in the EC funded GENiC project. The architecture was devised to create a platform that can integrate functions for workload management, cooling, power management and control of heat recovery for future, highly efficient data centres. The architecture is based on a distributed systems approach that allows the integration of components developed by several entities through defined interfaces and data formats. We also present use cases for the architecture, a brief description of the project's prototypical implementation, evaluation metrics and some lessons learned.
