Application: Data center management system (Patent ID: US20240104478A1)

The patent filed by Hitachi Ltd. describes a data center management system that aims to reduce power surplus from fluctuating renewable energy sources. The system utilizes data center candidate management information and application program type candidate management information to determine combinations of data center candidates and application program type candidates. These combinations are scored based on the characteristics of renewable energy supplied to the data center candidates and the application program type candidates, with a selection made based on the score.

The system includes an arithmetic device and a storage device that store information on data center candidates and application program type candidates. The system determines combinations of candidates, scores them based on renewable energy characteristics and application program types, and selects the most suitable combination. Additionally, the system can consider user-designated thresholds for renewable energy supply, predicted profit values based on application program types, performance information of data center candidates, priority of data center candidates, power generation source ranges, flexibility of application program types, and more to make informed decisions in managing data centers efficiently.
