Power Management Strategy and Performance Evaluation for OpenStack Object Storage
Ahn, Cheong-Jin; Song, Tae-Gun; Lee, Byeong-Hyeon; Kim, Deok-Hwan;
Object-based storage is an efficient storage solution that can handle unstructured data and shows better security and scalability than traditional block-based storage. However, in terms of power management, Object-based storage writes multiple copies in storage cluster, hence many servers consume unnecessary power in idle state. In order to resolve this problem, it is necessary to apply power management strategy by adjusting power mode of servers in idle state according to their workloads. In this paper, we proposed a new dynamic power management (DPM) method to transform power mode of storage servers dynamically according to workload information sent from proxy server. The experimental result shows that the proposed power management technic reduces total power consumption by 12% in the OpenStack based Swift object storage.
