Title: Computing laboratory sustainability & utilization: initiatives for a greener education
Author: Stokes, Kristian
Abstract: Environmental, social and economic sustainability has been a recent focus of academia and industry to further invest in the future and lower operating costs. In this thesis, various emerging techniques are applied in an academic laboratory environment to record, analyze and project green IT initiatives. Student utilization metrics are evaluated to observe typical computing operation during a normal academic quarter. CPU load, network usage, power consumption, and room temperature are analyzed. Sustainable power and virtualization practices are recommended based on projections and assessments of current and recommended configurations. The findings of this study can be used across an academic environment to further reduce energy usage and meet the objectives of the Institute's goals towards a green and sustainable environment.
