2020 arXiv   pre-print
The aforementioned characteristics introduce a new set of challenges, especially in terms of container provisioning and management, as the state-of-the-art resource management frameworks, employed in serverless  ...  To address them, we propose Fifer – an adaptive resource management framework to efficiently manage function-chains on serverless platforms.  ...  In Fifer, similar to the function scheduling policy, we greedily schedule containers on the least-resource-available server.  ...
