  • Network-constrained packing of brokered workloads in virtualized environments 

    Bassem, Christine; Bestavros, Azer (Computer Science Department, Boston University, 2014-11-10)
    Providing resource allocation with performance predictability guarantees is increasingly important in cloud platforms, especially for data-intensive applications, in which performance depends greatly on the available rates ...
  • End-to-end informed VM selection in compute clouds 

    Teixeira, Mario; Bestavros, Azer (Computer Science Department, Boston University, 2014-11-10)
    The selection of resources, particularly VMs, in current public IaaS clouds is usually done in a blind fashion, as cloud users do not have much information about resource consumption by co-tenant third-party tasks. In ...
  • Improving distributed virtual network embedding with offline optimization 

    Tazine, Samir; Matta, Ibrahim (Computer Science Department, Boston University, 2014-08-22)
    To cope with the complexity of the ever changing internet architecture, network virtualization services are vowed to play an important role in the future. To provide such solutions effectively, internet providers face the ...
  • On distributed virtual network embedding with guarantees 

    Esposito, Flavio; Di Paola, Donato; Matta, Ibrahim (Computer Science Department, Boston University, 2014-01-10)
    To provide wide-area network services, resources from different infrastructure providers are needed. Leveraging the consensus-based resource allocation literature, we propose a general distributed auction mechanism for the ...
  • A compositional approach to the max-flow problem 

    Kfoury, Assaf (Computer Science Department, Boston University, 2014-06-09)
    Although written as a friendly rejoinder to two negative reviews of a 10-page extended abstract, entitled “A Compositional Approach to Network Algorithms,” itself based on a report by the same title [3], this report is ...
  • An alloy verification model for consensus-based auction protocols 

    Mirzaei, Saber; Esposito, Flavio (Computer Science Department, Boston University, 2014-07-15)
    Max Consensus-based Auction (MCA) protocols are an elegant approach to establish conflict-free distributed allocations in a wide range of network utility maximization problems. A set of agents independently bid on a set ...
  • SDN management layer: design requirements and future direction 

    Wang, Yuefeng; Matta, Ibrahim (Computer Science Department, Boston University, 2014-07-16)
    Computer networks are becoming more and more complex and difficult to manage. The research community has been expending a lot of efforts to come up with a general management paradigm that is able to hide the details of the ...
  • Programming routing policies for video traffic 

    Wang, Yuefeng; Akhtar, Nabeel; Matta, Ibrahim (Computer Science Department, Boston University, 2014-07-16)
    Making the network programmable simplifies network management and enables network innovations. The Recursive InterNetwork Architecture (RINA) is our solution to enable network programmability. ProtoRINA is a user-space ...
  • Moving in next door: Network flooding as a side channel in cloud environments 

    Agarwal, Yatharth; Murale, Vishnu; Hennessey, Jason; Hogan, Kyle; Varia, Mayank (Springer International Publishing, 2016-11)
    Co-locating multiple tenants' virtual machines (VMs) on the same host underpins public clouds' affordability, but sharing physical hardware also exposes consumer VMs to side channel attacks from adversarial co-residents. ...

    Hennessey, Jason; Tikale, Sahil; Turk, Ata; Kaynar, Emine Ugur; Hill, Chris; Desnoyers, Peter; Krieger, Orran (ACM, 2016-10)
    We propose a new Exokernel-like layer to allow mutually untrusting physically deployed services to efficiently share the resources of a data center. We believe that such a layer offers not only efficiency gains, but may ...
  • Lived religion as an emerging field: an assessment of its contours and frontiers 

    Ammerman, Nancy T. (2016)
    Over the last three decades, lived religion has emerged as a distinct field of study, with an identifiable “canon” of originating sources. With this body of work reaching maturity, a critical assessment is in order. This ...
