With the increase of data storage demands, the energy consumption of data centers is also increasing. Energy saving and use of power resources are two key problems to be solved. In this paper, we introduce the fuel cells as the energy supply and study power resource use in data center power grids. By considering the limited load following of fuel cells and power budget fragmentation phenomenon, we transform the main two objectives into the optimization of workload distribution problem and use a
