Executive Summary

Due to the imperative need to reduce the management costs of large data centers, operators multiplex several concurrent database applications on a server farm connected to shared network attached storage. Determining and enforcing per-application resource quotas in the resulting cache hierarchy, on the fly, poses a complex resource allocation problem spanning the database server and the storage server tiers. This problem is further complicated by the need to provide strict Quality of Service (QoS) guarantees to hosted applications.
