  • 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, Maria A.; Royuela, Sara; Quiñones, Eduardo (Springer, 2018)
    Part of book or chapter of book
    Open Access
    OpenMP is increasingly being considered as a convenient parallel programming model to cope with the performance requirements of critical real-time systems. Recent works demonstrate that OpenMP enables to derive guarantees ...
  • Implementation of the K-Means Algorithm on Heterogeneous Devices: A Use Case Based on an Industrial Dataset 

    Xu, Ying hao; Vidal-Piñol, Miquel; Arejita, Beñat; Diaz, Javier; Alvarez, Carlos; Jiménez-González, Daniel; Martorell, Xavier; Mantovani, Filippo (IOS Press, 2018)
    Conference lecture
    Open Access
    This paper presents and analyzes a heterogeneous implementation of an industrial use case based on K-means that targets symmetric multiprocessing (SMP), GPUs and FPGAs. We present how the application can be optimized from ...
  • Multi-Node Advanced Performance and Power Analysis with Paraver 

    Mantovani, Filippo; Calore, Enrico (IOS Press, 2018)
    Conference lecture
    Open Access
    Performance analysis tools allow application developers to identify and characterize the inefficiencies that cause performance degradation in their codes. Due to the increasing interest in the High Performance Computing ...
  • An Architecture for Programming Distributed Applications on Fog to Cloud Systems 

    Lordan, Francesc; Lezzi, Daniele; Ejarque, Jorge; Badia, Rosa M. (Springer, 2018-02-08)
    Conference lecture
    Open Access
    This paper presents a framework to develop and execute applications in distributed and highly dynamic computing systems composed of cloud resources and fog devices such as mobile phones, cloudlets, and micro-clouds. The ...
  • A Functional Safety OpenMP∗ for Critical Real-Time Embedded Systems 

    Royuela, Sara; Duran, Alejandro; Serrano, Maria A.; Quiñones, Eduardo; Martorell, Xavier (Springer, 2017-08-17)
    Part of book or chapter of book
    Open Access
    OpenMP* has recently gained attention in the embedded domain by virtue of the augmentations implemented in the last specification. Yet, the language has a minimal impact in the embedded real-time domain mostly due to the ...
  • Tackling IoT ultra large scale systems: Fog computing in support of hierarchical emergent behaviors 

    Roca, Damian; Milito, Rodolfo; Nemirovsky, Mario; Valero Cortés, Mateo (Springer, 2018)
    Part of book or chapter of book
    Open Access
    The Internet of Things (IoT) marks a phase transition in the evolution of the Internet, distinguished by a massive connectivity and the interaction with the physical world. The organic evolution of IoT requires the ...
