Autonomic elasticity for cloud applications and infrastructures
27 January, 2016
Title: Autonomic elasticity for cloud applications and infrastructures
WEDNESDAY 27/1 at 13.15 in ITC 1245
Abstract: Elasticity, the ability to dynamically adjust infrastructure capacity to meet variations in application demand, is perhaps the most prominent feature of clouds. This seminar will present an overview of different resource management problems related to elasticity, including how to optimize capacity allocation for applications, how cloud data center providers can overbook their infrastructures with elastic (and static) applications to maximize utilization, and techniques to gracefully handle capacity shortages that arise due application elasticity.
Johan Tordsson is Associate Professor at the Department of Computing Science, Umeå University, from he also received his Ph.D. in 2009. After a period as visiting postdoc researcher at Universidad Complutense de Madrid, he worked for several years in the RESERVOIR, VISION Cloud, and OPTIMIS European projects, in the latter as Lead Architect and Scientific Coordinator. Tordsson’s research interests include autonomic management problems for clouds and data centers as well as enabling technologies such as virtualization. He is also co-founder and CTO for Elastisys, a spin-off company focused on optimizing cloud applications through predictive autoscaling.
