Abstract

Problems of the E-book application include different file formats, performance inefficiency and image distortion; those may cause a slow development of E-book marketing in the industry of information technology. This paper proposes an innovative E-book system called CloudBook, which utilizes an embedded Graphics Processing Unit (GPU) and a data locality aware Hadoop system to resolve the problems. The results of the experiments show that the CloudBook system can increase the performance of the OpenVG library by 73%, reduce the execution time of file conversion by 50%-75%, and improve the data hit ratio in cloud platform by 10%.
