BtrPlace: A Flexible Consolidation Manager for Highly Available Applications
Found in: IEEE Transactions on Dependable and Secure Computing
By Fabien Hermenier,Julia Lawall,Gilles Muller
Issue Date:September 2013
pp. 273-286
The massive amount of resources found in data centers makes it possible to provide high availability to multitier applications. Virtualizing these applications makes it possible to consolidate them on servers, reducing runtime costs. Nevertheless, replicat...
Aspect-Based Patterns for Grid Programming
Found in: Computer Architecture and High Performance Computing, Symposium on
By Luis Daniel Benavides Navarro, Rémi Douence, Fabien Hermenier, Jean-Marc Menaud, Mario Südholt
Issue Date:November 2008
pp. 141-148
The development of grid algorithms is frequently hampered by limited means to describe topologies and lack of support for the invasive composition of legacy components in order to pass data between them. In this paper we present a solution to overcome thes...
Higher SLA satisfaction in datacenters with continuous VM placement constraints
Found in: Proceedings of the 9th Workshop on Hot Topics in Dependable Systems (HotDep '13)
By Huynh Tu Dang, Fabien Hermenier
Issue Date:November 2013
pp. 1-6
In a virtualized datacenter, the Service Level Agreement for an application restricts the Virtual Machines (VMs) placement. An algorithm is in charge of maintaining a placement compatible with the stated constraints. Conventionally, when a placement algori...
Entropy: a consolidation manager for clusters
Found in: Proceedings of the 2009 ACM SIGPLAN/SIGOPS international conference on Virtual execution environments (VEE '09)
By Fabien Hermenier, Gilles Muller, Jean-Marc Menaud, Julia Lawall, Xavier Lorca
Issue Date:March 2009
pp. 1-24
Clusters provide powerful computing environments, but in practice much of this power goes to waste, due to the static allocation of tasks to nodes, regardless of their changing computational requirements. Dynamic consolidation is an approach that migrates ...
