Triage: balancing energy and quality of service in a microserver
The ease of deployment of battery-powered and mobile systems is pushing the network edge far from powered infrastructures. A primary challenge in building untethered systems is offering powerful aggregation points and gateways between heterogeneous end-points--a role traditionally played by powered servers. Microservers are battery-powered innetwork nodes that play a number of roles: processing data from clients, aggregating data, providing responses to queries, and acting as a network gateway. Providing QoS guarantees for these services can be extremely energy intensive. Since increased energy consumption translates to a shorter lifetime, there is a need for a new way to provide these QoS guarantees at minimal energy consumption. This paper presents Triage, a tiered hardware and software architecture for microservers. Triage extends the lifetime of a microserver by combining two independent, but connected platforms: a high-power platform that provides the capability to execute comple...
