    Due to the growth in energy consumption of data centres, the demand for optimal usage of servers has become a relevant topic. This paper contributes to the early design phases of data centres by providing insight into the power-performance trade-off that arises from power management. This paper proposes a flexible set of stochastic Petri net models which can be used easily to study the trade-off between performance and power consumption.
