Abstract

The constantly increasing amount of data generated from our everyday life requires Data Centers to store data. Data Centers need a lot of resources to operate, and Companies are working to find new solutions to improve efficiency and as well as effectiveness. After using sea water to cool off servers and studying alternative ways of generating power, the attention is now moving on alternative ways to manage data. Optimizing data management has two goals: power saving and efficiency increase. In this paper, we will discuss how Software-Defined procedures could be applied on Data Centers to optimize their operating modes, also reviewing some recent patents. Finally, we will discuss the importance of this technology along with future developments, highlighting pro and cons.

Keywords: Controller, data centers, openFlow, software defined networking.
