Abstract: In this paper, we present our empirical study of building a low-powered cluster called SLAP by leveraging mobile processors. To investigate the reliability and usability of our system, we have conducted various performance analyses based on HPL benchmark, a real semiconductor engineering application and the application of distributed file system. Our experience can show potential benefits, possibilities and limits of applying energy efficient alternative solutions to supercomputing which can result in many interesting research issues.
