Executive Summary

Cluster storage systems are essential building blocks for many high-end computing infrastructures. Although energy conservation techniques have been intensively studied in the context of clusters and disk arrays, improving energy efficiency of cluster storage systems remains an open issue. To address this problem, the authors describe in this paper an approach to implementing an energy-efficient cluster storage system or ECOS for short. ECOS relies on the architecture of cluster storage systems in which each I/O node manages multiple disks - one buffer disk and several data disks.
