    Talk Title: Automated Resource Management in Large-Scale Networked Systems

    Series: CS Colloquium

    Abstract: Internet applications rely on large-scale networked environments such as the cloud for their backend support. In these multi-tenanted environments, various stakeholders have diverse goals. The objective of the infrastructure provider is to increase revenue by utilizing the resources efficiently. Applications, on the other hand, want to meet their performance requirements at minimal cost. However, estimating the exact amount of resources required to meet the application needs is a difficult task, even for expert users. Easy workarounds employed for tackling this problem, such as resource over-provisioning, negatively impact the goals of the provider, applications, or both.
    In this talk, I will discuss the design of application-aware self-optimizing systems through automated resource management that helps meet the varied goals of the provider and applications in large-scale networked environments. The key steps in closed-loop resource management include learning of application resource needs, efficient scheduling of resources, and adaptation to variations in real time. I will describe how I apply this high-level approach in two distinct environments using (a) Morpheus in enterprise clusters, and (b) Patronus in cellular provider networks with geo-distributed micro data centers. I will also touch upon my related work in application-specific context at the intersection of network scheduling and deep learning. I will conclude with my vision for self-optimizing systems including fully automated clouds and an elastic geo-distributed platform for thousands of micro data centers.

    This lecture satisfies requirements for CSCI 591: Research Colloquium.
