    Performance Impact of Lock-Free Algorithms on Multicore Communication APIs

    Data race conditions in multi-tasking software applications are prevented by serializing access to shared memory resources, ensuring data consistency and deterministic behavior. Traditionally tasks acquire and release locks to synchronize operations on shared memory. Unfortunately, lock management can add significant processing overhead especially for multi-core deployments where tasks on different...

    Adversarial VNet Embeddings: A Threat for ISPs?

    An Internet Service Provider's (ISP) network infrastructure and its properties often constitute a critical business secret, not only because the smarter investment of a given resource budget yields a competitive advantage, but also because the discovery of, e.g., bottlenecks, may be exploited for attacks or bad publicity. Hence, providers around...

    The SPOSAD Architectural Style for Multi-Tenant Software Applications

    A multi-tenant software application is a special type of highly scalable, hosted software, in which the application and its infrastructure are shared among multiple tenants to save development and maintenance costs. The limited understanding of the underlying architectural concepts still prevents many software architects from designing such a system. Existing...

    A Large-Scale Industrial Case Study on Architecture-Based Software Reliability Analysis

    Architecture-based software reliability analysis methods shall help software architects to identify critical software components and to quantify their influence on the system reliability. Although researchers have proposed more than 20 methods in this area, empirical case studies applying these methods on large-scale industrial systems are rare. The costs and benefits...
