DCloud: Deadline-aware Resource Allocation for Cloud Computing Jobs
Abstract—DCloud: Deadline-aware Resource Allocation for Cloud Computing Jobs. The tremendous growth of cloud computing, it is increasingly critical to provide quantifiable performance to tenants and to improve resource utilization for the cloud provider. Though many recent proposals focus on guaranteeing job performance (with a particular note on network bandwidth)in the cloud, they usually lack efficient utilization of cloud resource, or vice versa. We present DCloud, which leverages the < Final Year Projects 2016 > soft deadlines of cloud computing jobs to enable flexible and efficient resource utilization in data centers. With the deadline requirement of a job guaranteed, DCloud employs both time sliding (postponing the launching time of a job) and bandwidth scaling (adjusting the bandwidth associated with VMs) in resource allocation.
