Abstract

The prevalence of novel Internet services, the so called web 2.0 services, has a significant impact on the infrastructures running them. The increased demands are handled with enlarged facilities, from data centers throughout transfer networks to end-users. Several studies have shed light on the augmented power consumption of these facilities, especially in case of data centers. Accordingly, the main focus of the research is how can the power consumption of data centers be reduced. However, the aggregate power consumption caused by the Internet services, whose volume may be significant considering the total number of Internet users, has not received the attention of the community yet. Therefore, we address this issue by quantifying the aggregate power consumption of the most popular services based on real-world measurements. Based on the results, our goal is to emphasize that significant amount of power can be saved at the end-users' side with prudent design of the content delivery.
