Large-scale Data Centers (DCs) host tens of thousands of diverse applications each day. Apart from determining where to schedule workloads, the cluster manager should also decide when to constrain application admission to prevent system oversubscription. At the same time datacenter users care not only for fast execution time but for low waiting time (fast scheduling) as well. Recent paper has addressed the first challenge in the presence of unknown workloads, but not the second one.
