ABSTRACT To ensure the operability and reliability of large scale enterprise resource planning systems (ERP), a peak-load oriented hardware sizing is often used. Better utilization can be achieved by employing an adaptive infrastructure based on smaller computational units in combination with an intelligent allocation management. The SAP University Competence Center (German SAP HCC) at the Technische Universitat Munchen provides support for 55 ERP training systems. The evaluation of the historical load data revealed that many applications exhibit cyclical resource consumption. In this paper we show the extraction of load patterns and present self-organizing controlling concepts in the context of the SAP HCC

    ABSTRACT: The advent of Grid computing gives enterprises an ever increasing choice of computing options, yet research has so far hardly addressed the problem of mixing the different computing options in a cost-minimal fashion. The following paper presents a comprehensive cost model and a mixed integer optimization model which can be used to minimize the IT expenditures of an enterprise and help in decision-making when to outsource certain business software applications. A sample scenario is analyzed and promising cost savings are demonstrated. Possible applications of the model to future research questions are outlined.

    ABSTRACT: Two IT-system control methods, which realize efficient battery usage for battery-powered IT systems targeting developing countries such as India, are proposed. The proposed methods control the IT equipment and cooling power collaboratively on the basis of a forecast of power outage duration. To quantitatively evaluate these methods, power outages in Bangalore, India, were measured. The proposed methods were evaluated by using this measured power outage data. According to the evaluation results, the proposed methods can improve a measure of battery efficiency, namely, IT-used-energy (Qt )/battery-used-energy (Qu ), by 39% compared to that of conventional IT systems.

    ABSTRACT: To ensure the operability and reliability of large scale Enterprise Resource Planning Systems (ERP) and enterprise services, a peak-load oriented hardware sizing is often used, which results in low average utilization. The evaluation of historical load data revealed that many applications show cyclical resource consumption. The identification of load patterns can be used for static as well as dynamic allocation optimization. In this paper we show the extraction of load patterns and present self-organizing service alloca- tion concepts. This practical evaluation of theoretical adaptive computing concepts is of particu- lar importance for the configuration of emerging service oriented architectures (SOA).
