QoS-driven Resource Management for Big-data Computing Systems
Together with the increasing adoption of cloud computing is the emergence of data-intensive applications. Dubbed as ‘‘big data’’, these applications need to process and analyze massive amounts of data in parallel. As the demand of data-intensive computing continues to grow, it becomes increasingly common to use shared infrastructure to run such applications, while virtualization plays a key role to transparently and flexibly consolidate these applications. However, it is challenging to meet the applications’ Quality of Service (QoS) requirements in such a virtualized data-intensive computing environment. Data-intensive applications require high-performance IOs, relying on distributed storage and network resources which are difficult to allocate in a shared infrastructure. Even if these necessary resource control knobs are available, it is still difficult to determine the necessary allocations because data-intensive applications are highly parallel and intrinsically complex. Finally, the use of virtualized resources adds additional complexity and dynamism to the resource management problem. The objective of this proposed project is to address the resource management challenges for virtualized data-intensive computing and enable diverse applications to meet their desired QoS in such environments.
