Self-Expressive Management of Business-Critical Workloads in Virtualized Datacenters

Vincent van Beek, Jesse Donkervliet, Tim Hegeman, Stefan Hugtenburg, Alexandru Iosup
2015 Computer  
WORKLOAD CHARACTERISTICS Business-critical workloads differ significantly from scientific and analytic workloads in the level of customer data sensitivity.  ...  Self-awareness in computer systems is the ability to alter behavior in some beneficial way, without human intervention, 4 while self-expressiveness is the notion that a system knows its own state, context  ...  Data center users embed their applications in VMs, either as a single VM or VM cluster (vCluster).  ...
