Energy Efficiency and I/O Performance of Low-Power Architectures

Abstract

This paper presents an energy efficiency and I/O performance analysis of low-power archi-tectures when compared to conventional architectures, with the goal of studying the viability of using them as storage servers. Our results show that despite the fact the power demand of the storage device amounts for a small fraction of the power demand of the whole system, significant increases in power demand are observed when accessing the storage device. We investigate the access pattern impact on power demand, looking at the whole system and at the storage device by itself, and compare all tested configurations regarding energy efficiency. Then we extrapolate the conclusions from this research to provide guidelines for when considering the replacement of traditional storage servers by low-power alternatives. We show the choice depends on the expected workload, estimates of power demand of the systems, and factors limiting performance. These guidelines can be applied for other architectures than the ones used in this work.
