Energy proportional data centers optimize power consumption

Google research looks to develop energy proportional data centers that throttle power based on network utilization.  The technique involves modifying the network topology and dynamically tuning network switches.  …

…   “the authors suggest several ways to build data center networks that use power in proportion to the volume of data being transmitted, rather than running at high-power during periods of both high and low utilization. ”   …
