structure and the runtime I/O access patterns.  ...  Our study focuses on block-level similarity and I/O access patterns, revealing correlations between common content of different images and application-level access semantics.  ...  Section IV focuses on correlation of runtime I/O access patterns with content similarity clusters, analyzes I/O accesses within shared content clusters, and also examines temporal access patterns.  ...

V-Cache: Towards Flexible Resource Provisioning for Multi-tier Applications in IaaS Clouds

Yanfei Guo, Palden Lama, Jia Rao, Xiaobo Zhou
2013 2013 IEEE 27th International Symposium on Parallel and Distributed Processing  
We propose V-Cache, a machine learning based approach to flexible provisioning of resources for multi-tier applications in clouds.  ...  We develop a reinforcement learning algorithm to optimally allocate the remaining capacity to other tiers. We have implemented V-Cache on a VMware-based cloud testbed.  ...  Mis-configured user clusters may incur excessive access (usually from a subset of the VMs) to the cloud hardware, such as processors and I/O devices, creating significant interferences to the co-running  ...

Towards scalable on-demand collective data access in IaaS clouds: An adaptive collaborative content exchange proposal

Bogdan Nicolae, Andrzej Kochut, Alexei Karve
2016 Journal of Parallel and Distributed Computing  
Several approaches deal with this pattern either by means of pre-broadcast before access or on-demand concurrent access to the repository where the image or dataset is stored.  ...  In this context, a common pattern is collective read, i.e., accessing the same VM image or dataset from a large number of VM instances concurrently.  ...  Our own previous work [24] explores how to improve on-demand approaches by having a VM instance push the content it accessed during runtime to other VM instances, effectively avoiding I/O accesses to  ...

Survey of Memory Management Techniques for HPC and Cloud Computing

Anna Pupykina, Giovanni Agosta
2019 IEEE Access  
In this context, a viable scenario is that of multiple applications, with different QoS levels, coexisting on the same deeply heterogeneous HPC infrastructure and sharing resources.  ...  As such, the typical practice of reserving a subset of the supercomputer to a single application becomes less attractive, leading to the exploration of cloud technologies.  ...  The proposed approach allows multiple VMs to access shared memory resources in accordance with their demands dynamically, thereby improving VM communication efficiency and VM memory swapping efficiency  ...
