Welcome to DCPerf 2012

The 2nd international workshop on Data Center Performance

Data centers have become an integral part of the backbone infrastructure for information technology. In particular, they provide a cost-efficient solution for provisioning a wide range of computing resources in diverse environments such as for business, scientific, or mobile purposes. Owing to the rapid growth of user-defined and user-generated programs, applications and content, the complexity of deploying and operating data centers is expected to increase. Considering the high volume of mixed workloads, the diversity of services offered, and the increasing mobility of users across geographically distributed areas, the performance optimization of data centers has become ever more necessary and challenging, especially concerning criteria such as scalability, reliability, manageability, power efficiency, area density, and operating costs. As a result, adaptive and autonomic optimization strategies are essential for managing the multi-dimensional complexity of data center performance.

The goal of this workshop is to promote a community-wide discussion to find and identify suitable strategies to enable effective and scalable data center performance optimizations. We are looking for papers that present new techniques, introduce new methodologies, propose new research directions, or discuss strategies for resolving open performance problems at all layers of a data center.
