  • Accelerating K-mer Frequency Counting with GPU and Non-Volatile Memory 

    Cadenelli, Nicola; Polo Bardés, Jordà; Carrera, David (IEEE, 2018-02-15)
    Conference lecture
    Open Access
    The emergence of Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) platforms has increased the throughput of genomic sequencing and in turn the amount of data that needs to be processed, requiring highly efficient computation for its ...
  • Adaptive MapReduce scheduling in shared environments 

    Polo Bardés, Jordà; Becerra Fontal, Yolanda; Carrera Pérez, David; Torres Viñals, Jordi; Ayguadé Parra, Eduard; Steinder, Malgorzata (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2014)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    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 ...
  • A highly parameterizable framework for Conditional Restricted Boltzmann Machine based workloads accelerated with FPGAs and OpenCL 

    Jaksic, Zoran; Cadenelli, Nicola; Buchaca Prats, David; Polo Bardés, Jordà; Berral García, Josep Lluís; Carrera Pérez, David (Elsevier, 2020-03-01)
    Article
    Open Access
    Conditional Restricted Boltzmann Machine (CRBM) is a promising candidate for a multidimensional system modeling that can learn a probability distribution over a set of data. It is a specific type of an artificial neural ...
  • Considerations in using OpenCL on GPUs and FPGAs for throughput-oriented genomics workloads 

    Cadenelli, Nicola; Jaksic, Zoran; Polo Bardés, Jordà; Carrera, David (Elsevier, 2019-05)
    Article
    Open Access
    The recent upsurge in the available amount of health data and the advances in next-generation sequencing are setting the ground for the long-awaited precision medicine. To process this deluge of data, bioinformatics workloads ...

  • Disaggregating Non-Volatile Memory for Throughput-Oriented Genomics Workloads 

    Call, Aaron; Polo Bardés, Jordà; Carrera, David; Guim, Francesc; Sen, Sujoy (Springer, 2018-12)
    Conference lecture
    Open Access
    Massive exploitation of next-generation sequencing technologies requires dealing with both: huge amounts of data and complex bioinformatics pipelines. Computing architectures have evolved to deal with these problems, ...
  • Enabling distributed key-value stores with low latency-impact snapshot support 

    Polo Bardés, 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 ...
  • Multi-constraint scheduling of MapReduce workloads 

    Polo Bardés, Jordà (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2014-07-15)
    Doctoral thesis
    Open Access
    In recent years there has been an extraordinary growth of large-scale data processing and related technologies in both, industry and academic communities. This trend is mostly driven by the need to explore the increasingly ...
  • Performance evaluation of microservices architectures using containers 

    Amaral, Marcelo; Polo Bardés, Jordà; Carrera Pérez, David; Mohomed, Iqbal; Unuvar, Merve; Steinder, Malgorzata (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2015)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    Microservices architecture has started a new trend for application development for a number of reasons: (1) to reduce complexity by using tiny services; (2) to scale, remove and deploy parts of the system easily; (3) to ...
