ECO: Edge-Cloud Optimization of 5G applications

In The 21st IEEE/ACM International Symposium on Cluster, Cloud and Internet Computing (CCGrid 2021), Melbourne, Victoria, Australia

Centralized cloud computing with 100+ milliseconds network latencies cannot meet the tens of milliseconds to sub- millisecond response times required for emerging 5G applications like autonomous driving, smart manufacturing, tactile internet, and augmented or virtual reality. We describe a new, dynamic runtime that enables such applications to make effective use of a 5G network, computing at the edge of this network, and resources in the centralized cloud, at all times. Our runtime continuously monitors the interaction among the microservices, estimates the data produced and exchanged among the microservices, and uses a novel graph min-cut algorithm to dynamically map the microservices to the edge or the cloud to satisfy application- specific response times. Our runtime also handles temporary network partitions, and maintains data consistency across the distributed fabric by using microservice proxies to reduce WAN bandwidth by an order of magnitude, all in an application- specific manner by leveraging knowledge about the application’s functions, latency-critical pipelines and intermediate data. We illustrate the use of our runtime by successfully mapping two complex, representative real-world video analytics applications to the AWS/Verizon Wavelength edge-cloud architecture, and improving application response times by 2x when compared with a static edge-cloud implementation.

UniParthenope OpenSource Lab Party

uposl

On the occasion of the new release of our main products, GVirtuS and JaClouX we are pleased to announce the first “UniParthenope OpenSource Lab Party”.

The party will be held on March 16 2011 in the Faculty of Science and Technology of the University of Napoli “Parthenope”.

The party will be organized as a conference where there will be held talks about the projects developed in the OpenSource Lab.

In particular will be presented:

  • GVirtuS, a framework for the implementation of split-driver model and the of virtulization of hardware devices.
  • JaClouX, an open source, cloud independent, Java API for high performance cloud computing application design, development, simulation and evaluation.

During the party it will be possible to meet and talk with the developers of the laboratory.

Further news about the party will be posted on the OSL website: http://osl.uniparthenope.it/tag/osl-party.

I'm the science (aka my first publication)

In these last days my first paper had been published. The title of the paper is “A GPGPU Transparent Virtualization Component for High Performance Computing Clouds”. It’s an article about gVirtuS: the implementation, the usage and a comparison with other software that aim to accomplish to do the same job (seriously in the real world there isn’t any competitor).

I wrote this article with the staff of the Applied High-Performance Scientific Computing Research Laboratory of the “Department of Applied Science” (DSA)University of Napoli “Parthenope”. This work was presented at Euro-Par 2010.

For the occasion I’ve added a new page to my website to collect my Publications (yes, I hope that I’ll write some other papers).
