    Adaptive Performance-Aware Distributed Memory Caching

    Distributed in-memory caching systems such as memcached have become crucial for improving the performance of web applications. However, memcached by itself does not control which node is responsible for each data object, and inefficient partitioning schemes can easily lead to load imbalances. Further, a statically sized memcached cluster can be...

    A Component-Based Performance Comparison of Four Hypervisors

    Virtualization has become a popular way to make more efficient use of server resources within both private data centers and public cloud platforms. While recent advances in CPU architectures and new virtualization techniques have reduced the performance cost of using virtualization, overheads still exist, particularly when multiple virtual machines are...

    Cyber Security and Privacy in Cloud Computing: Multidisciplinary Research Problems in Business

    The authors are now in the midst of a classic technology hype cycle called cloud computing. In the vocabulary of the Gartner Group they are at the peak of inflated expectations. Despite the media hyping cloud computing, there can still be tremendous benefit to many who adopt a cloud computing...

    A Cross-Layer ILP Formulation for Finding p-Cycles in All-Optical Networks

    Their high recovery speed and efficiency have made p-Cycles a premier approach to link protection. Recent research has discussed their capabilities and provided different methods for p-Cycle selection in communication networks. In this paper, the authors consider the p-Cycle approach to resilient all-optical network design and present an ILP formulation...
