Data and service delivery have been historically based on “network centric? architectures, with datacentres being the focal sources. The amount of energy consumed by these datacentres has become an emerging issue for the companies operating them. Thus, many contributions propose solutions to improve the current datacentre architecture and deployments to make them more energy efficient. A recently proposed approach argues for removing the datacentres from the delivery architecture. Their functionalities will instead be distributed at the edge of the network, directly within operator-managed home devices such as a Set-Top-Box (STB). This paper presents a study of the overall energy consumption required by such a community of STBs in order to provide the same services as datacentres. This paper also proposes a preliminary distributed algorithm to further reduce this overall energy consumption. This algorithm will be deployed over managed peer-to-peer network of STBs. It will make optimization decisions and instruct unused STBs to switch Off to save energy without altering the general Service Level Agreement. This will effectively create a controlled churn, which will require a controlled redeployment and/or duplication of the data and services.
