I run my AD on a Cubietruck. Installing Debian Testing and moving the
root file system to the Sata disk was really a pain. But anyway: for
my minimaistic arrangement, it works very good. Updates pretty often
break the self compiled Bind 9.9, but a simple 'make install' typically
In the beginning, when the file system was still on the SD-card it was
pretty sluggish. But since I got the SSD hooked up to it, it
works very decent.
I have a dedicated file server with a big raid, and I don't think
the Cubie is crippling the performance of the file server. I can
recommend the Cubie, but it is not nearly as easy to operate as a
Raspberry Pi. But the Cubie is much more responsive than the Pi.

If You need a file server, presumably You want a big conventional HD,
which will cost You in the order of 10W alone (on the line side, i.e.
including the losses of the power supply). Then You might want a
Gigabit switch ... So most of us will end up with much more than just
2..5 W. But agreed, the Arm will bring the power drain down by a
substantial amount. Personally I shut the file server down late at
night - and wake it up from a SSH shell on the router or the Cubie.
Not running everything 24/7 is the second approach to reduce the waste
