Dear mastofriends, if any of you has already encountered research papers or other works treating about the difference between the client-server network approach (#centralized) VS peer-to-peer approach (#decentralized) in term of their impact on climate and biodiversity I'd be very interested please. thanks! :)
@bortzmeyer @imacrea Ça me fait penser au papier de 2017 basé sur le debian benchmark https://greenlab.di.uminho.pt/wp-content/uploads/2017/09/paperSLE.pdf
mais pas spécifique au centralisé/decentralisé
@silmathoron @imacrea Il y a juste ce document, qui est plutôt un plan de travail : https://hal.archives-ouvertes.fr/hal-03140631/file/Musiani_AtelierACDD-27janv.pdf
@wendy @imacrea it is not an exact match, but I wrote a paper about edge computing and sustainability. It is not a quantified comparison of peer to peer and client server model though, if that is what you are searching for. I'd be curious to hear your findings :) I don't think you can quite disentangle the two models based on today's networks (except perhaps in protocols such as SSB or sneakernets).
@vanecx @imacrea Not sure if this helps your mission but paragraph 9 of this paper covers how #Cloudflare (a centralized service) has a negative environmental impact → https://git.disroot.org/dCF/deCloudflare/src/branch/master/subfiles/rapsheet.cloudflare.md
