    Current scientific workflows are large and complex. They normally perform thousands of simulations whose results combined with searching and data analytics algorithms, in order to infer new knowledge, generate a very large ...
  • Predictable parallel programming with OpenMP 

    Serrano Gracia, María Astón; Royuela Alcázar, Sara; Marongiu, Andrea; Quiñones Moreno, Eduardo (River Publishers, 2018)
    Part of book or chapter of book
    Open Access
    This chapter motivates the use of the OpenMP (Open Multi-Processing) parallel programming model to develop future critical real-time embedded systems, and analyzes the time-predictable properties of the OpenMP tasking ...
  • YOLO: Speeding Up VM and Docker Boot Time by Reducing I/O Operations 

    Nguyen, Thuy L.; Nou Castell, Ramon; Lebre, Adrien (Springer, 2019)
    Part of book or chapter of book
    Open Access
    Although this comes as a surprise, the time to boot a Docker-based container can last as long as a virtual machine in high consolidated cloud scenarios. Because this time is critical as boot duration defines how an application ...

    Open Access
    The Transparent heterogeneous hardware Architecture deployment for eNergy Gain in Operation (TANGO) project’s goal is to characterise factors which affect power consumption in software development and operation for ...
  • dReDBox: A Disaggregated Architectural Perspective for Data Centers 

    Alachiotis, Nikolaos; Andronikakis, Andreas; Papadakis, Orion; Theodoropoulos, Dimitris; Pnevmatikatos, Dionisios; Syrivelis, Dimitris; Reale, Andrea; Katrinis, Kostas; Zervas, George; Mishra, Vaibhawa; Yuan, Hui; Syrigos, Ilias; Igoumenos, Ioannis; Korakis, Thanasis; Torrents, Marti; Zyulkyarov, Ferad (Springer, 2018-08-22)
    Part of book or chapter of book
    Open Access
    Data centers are currently constructed with fixed blocks (blades); the hard boundaries of this approach lead to suboptimal utilization of resources and increased energy requirements. The dReDBox (disaggregated Recursive ...
  • Towards an OpenMP Specification for Critical Real-Time Systems 

    Serrano Gracia, María Astón; Royuela Alcázar, Sara; Quiñones Moreno, Eduardo (Springer, 2018)
    Conference lecture
