Here you will find information related to speed and consumption.

Like many other applications that leverage network throughput, the Cubbit application will try to encrypt and transfer the files as fast as possible no matter the other tasks being done on the machine. We have a feature called Instant Upload coming in the future to help alleviate this, which will simply send large files very quickly over the local network to the Cell, where it will offload the computational work to the Cell and free up CPU use!
We usually recommend to split large uploads. In this case we would suggest uploading up to 30 GB at a time. It won’t speed things up but it will make the transfer more reliable and less resource demanding.
The electricity consumption is 0.13 kWh per day. The board itself in the Cell uses less than 1W thermal dissipation at 1 GHz.
