Home environments have a great potential of resource sharing and energy saving. More and more home computers are running on an always-on basis (e.g. media-centers or file-sharing clients). Such home environments have not been sufficiently analyzed regarding their energy-efficient operation, yet. This paper discusses network virtualiza-tion methods that are(More)
This paper reveals the power saving potential of P2P file sharing in two cases; popular and unpopular files. For popular files, we derive, with regard to BitTorrent, an expression for the optimal time seeders should support leechers. For unpopular files, we extend an existing model by taking into account leechers’ power consumption dependent on the load.(More)
In this paper, a new architecture for sharing resources amongst home environments is proposed. Our approach goes far beyond traditional systems for distributed virtualization like PlanetLab or Grid computing, since it relies on complete decentralization in a peer-to-peer like manner, and above all, aims at energy efficiency. Energy metrics are defined,(More)
