English abstract:
Blockchains and decentralized file systems like the
InterPlanetary File System (IPFS) are frequently named as
means to share data among different devices and stakeholders
in Internet of Things (IoT) scenarios. Very often, the idea is to
connect lightweight IoT-based data sources, e.g., sensor nodes,
to a ledger or a file system via a Single-board Computer (SBC),
i.e., using computational resources at the edge of the network for
providing an interface between the data sources and the ledger
or file system.
However, SBCs like a Raspberry Pi naturally possess only
limited resources, and therefore may not be suitable to provide
an interface between IoT-based data sources and decentralized
ledgers and file systems. Within this paper, we evaluate the
applicability and performance of common SBCs, namely the
Raspberry Pi 3, the Odroid-XU4, and the Intel Galileo Gen2,
when used in order to run IPFS and Ethereum client software.
