    In this paper we present a MapReduce task scheduler for shared environments in which MapReduce is executed along with other resource-consuming workloads, such as transactional applications. All workloads may potentially ...
  • Enabling distributed key-value stores with low latency-impact snapshot support 

    Polo, Jordà; Becerra Fontal, Yolanda; Carrera Pérez, David; Torres Viñals, Jordi; Ayguadé Parra, Eduard; Spreitzer, Mike; Steinder, Malgorzata (2013)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    Current distributed key-value stores generally provide greater scalability at the expense of weaker consistency and isolation. However, additional isolation support is becoming increasingly important in the environments ...
  • Enabling resource sharing between transactional and batch workloads using dynamic application placement 

    Carrera Pérez, David; Steinder, Malgorzata; Whalley, Ian; Torres Viñals, Jordi; Ayguadé Parra, Eduard (Springer, 2008)
    Conference lecture
    Open Access
    We present a technique that enables existing middleware to fairly manage mixed workloads: batch jobs and transactional applications. The technique leverages a generic application placement controller, which dynamically ...

  • Managing SLAs of heterogeneous workloads using dynamic application placement 

    Carrera Pérez, David; Steinder, Malgorzata; Whalley, Ian; Torres Viñals, Jordi; Ayguadé Parra, Eduard (ACM Press, NY, 2008)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    In this paper we address the problem of managing heterogeneous workloads in a virtualized data center. We consider two different workloads: transactional applications and long-running jobs. We present a technique that ...
  • Utitily-based placement of dynamic Web applications with fairness goals 

    Carrera Pérez, David; Steinder, Malgorzata; Whalley, Ian; Torres Viñals, Jordi; Ayguadé Parra, Eduard (2008)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    We study the problem of dynamic resource allocation to clustered Web applications. We extend application server middleware with the ability to automatically decide the size of application clusters and their placement on ...
