This chapter aims to describe the current state and the ongoing efforts to integrate a monitoring and controlling architecture in modern computing environments. Benefits to be gained from this architecture include: More knowledge about the available computing resources and the capability to establish a management platform that optimizes energy efficiency as well as the availability of the computer environment in a time of a rapidly growing need for computer systems. In two use cases, namely server virtualisation and High Performance Computing (HPC), implementations of a management system for energy-efficiency were evaluated, showing that it is possible to increase the energy-efficiency by more than 10%, depending on the use case and the workload.
