This is a small project to initiate an engagement following an unsuccessful application for a larger Data Lab project.
Trisent’s core technology is called the Personal Context Management System (PCM...
We have identified the need for a more coherent and closer monitoring of system load and requirements in terms of power consumption within datacentres.
This project will develop a prototype applicat...
