Summer Semester 2019

Winter Semester 2018/2019

Brian Setz is a Research Assistant and PhD candidate at the Institute of Architecture of Application Systems (IAAS) of the University of Stuttgart. He is supervised by prof. dr. Marco Aiello, and is a member of the Service Computing department, headed by prof. dr. Marco Aiello. His research interests include: Cloud Computing, Green Computing, Internet of Things, Energy Efficient Data Centers.


In today’s data-centric world, people expect the right data to be available everywhere, anytime, cheaply, in growing quantities and ‘processed-right’. Increasing data storage, processing and continuity requires a globally growing and more efficient data-center management to lower the environmental footprint.

The ‘business-as-usual’ trajectory could see data-center greenhouse gases double by 2020 from a 0.28% share of total global carbon emissions in 2007. In some cases, the total energy costs in a data-center can exceed the initial capital investment cost. While, the ICT industry represents a 2% share of the global carbon emissions.

The NextGenSmart DC project’s premise is that the application of state-of-the-art ICT tools and techniques can improve the environmental footprint of energy-intensive facilities and deliver Smarter and Greener Data-Centers, through ‘self-help’.
