Transparent Throughput Elasticity for IaaS Cloud Storage Using Guest-Side Block-Level Caching

Bogdan Nicolae, Pierre Riteau, Kate Keahey
2014 2014 IEEE/ACM 7th International Conference on Utility and Cloud Computing  
Storage elasticity on IaaS clouds is a crucial feature in the age of data-intensive computing.  ...  We show how this idea can be achieved efficiently at the block-device level, using a caching mechanism that leverages iterative behavior and learns from past experience.  ...  ACKNOWLEDGMENTS The experiments presented in this paper were carried out using the Shamrock cluster of IBM Research, Ireland. This material is based in part on work supported in part by the U.S.  ...

Towards Transparent Throughput Elasticity for IaaS Cloud Storage

Bogdan Nicolae, Pierre Riteau, Kate Keahey
2015 International Journal of Distributed Systems and Technologies  
Storage elasticity on IaaS clouds is a crucial feature in the age of data-intensive computing, especially when considering fluctuations of I/O throughput.  ...  We show how this idea can be achieved efficiently at the block-device level, using a caching mechanism that leverages iterative behavior and learns from past experience.  ...  Our approach offers low-level transparency that enables any higher-level storage abstraction to benefit from throughput elasticity, including those not originally designed to run on IaaS clouds.  ...
