Open AccessExecuting traditional Message Passing Interface (MPI) applications on multi-core cluster balancing speed and computational efficiency is a difficult task that parallel programmers have to deal with. For this reason, ...
Diluting the Scalability Boundaries: Exploring the Use of Disaggregated Architectures for High-Level Network Data Analysis Vega, Carlos; Zazo, Jose F.; Meyer, Hugo; Zyulkyarov, Ferad; Lopez-Buedo, S.; Aracil, Javier (IEEE, 2018-02-15)
Open AccessTraditional data centers are designed with a rigid architecture of fit-for-purpose servers that provision resources beyond the average workload in order to deal with occasional peaks of data. Heterogeneous data centers are ...
