Arranged workshop on Cloud Service Scalability

21. 05. 2014

The HotTopiCS workshop was successful and consisted of five papers. The workshop was led by Steffen Becker and Gunnar Brataas. In the break-out session, 16 researchers, among them the ICPE Chair Klaus Lange, participated in intense discussion on metrics for elasticity and scalability and on how to capture models for the same. The summary of these discussions can be found here and here. We discussed the possibility of repeating the success in Austin, Texas for the next ICPE conference, January 2015.

Presentation of CloudScale at Closer

21. 05. 2014

We presented the CloudScale project’s motivation, methods and current achievements in a 20 minutes talk at the European Project Space co-located to the Closer Conference in Barcelona. In particular, the project poster, which was presented in addition, raised a lot of interesting discussions and brought practitioners from industry and academia together to discuss the method and importance of the projects results. Beside the presentation of the overall project results, a paper (http://sdqweb.ipd.kit.edu/publications/pdfs/KrLo2014_Closer_IsolationTypes.pdf) discussing various implementations of performance isolation methods on a tenants basis was presented by CloudScale members.
