OCP Cold Storage Test-bed
Lee, Jaemyoun; Kang, Kyungtae;
Cloud computing systems require a huge number of storage servers due to the growing implications of power bills, carbon emissions, and logistics of data centers. These considerations have motivated researchers to improve the energy efficiency of storage servers. Most servers use a lot of power irrespective of the amount of computing that they are doing, and one important goal is to redesign servers to be power-proportional. However, Research on large-scale storage systems is hampered by their cost. It is therefore desirable to develop a scalable test-bed for evaluating the power consumption of large-scale storage systems. We are building on open-source projects to construct a test-bed which will contribute to the assessment of power consumption in tiered storage systems. Integrating the cloud application platform can easily extend the proposed testbed laying a foundation for the design and evaluation of low-power storage servers.
