Abstract [en]

In this paper, we investigate the feasibility of running web servers on low-power micro-computing boards, with emphasis on analysing the tradeoffs between power and performance. Today, small-to-medium scale enterprises, NGOs, universities typically deploy an architecture where frontend servers deliver static content and backend servers the dynamic content.   Experimentation using an ARM-based Raspberry Pi system shows that, for static content, Raspberry Pi achieves similar response times to that of a typical tower server running on standard hardware.   Although, the Raspberry Pi is found unsuitable for serving dynamic content, our findings show that many of these small-to-medium scale organisations can achieve large energy savings by using low-power servers for serving the static content.
