  • EbbRT: a customizable operating system for cloud applications 

    Schatzberg, Dan; Cadden, James; Dong, Han; Krieger, Orran; Appavoo, Jonathan (Computer Science Department, Boston University, 2015-06-28)
    Efficient use of hardware requires operating system components be customized to the application workload. Our general purpose operating systems are ill-suited for this task. We present Genesis, a new operating system that ...
  • EbbRT: Elastic Building Block Runtime - overview 

    Schatzberg, Dan; Cadden, James; Dong, Han; Krieger, Orran; Appavoo, Jonathan (Computer Science Department, Boston University, 2015-05-01)
    EbbRT provides a lightweight runtime that enables the construction of reusable, low-level system software which can integrate with existing, general purpose systems. It achieves this by providing a library that can be ...
  • Linear arrangement of Halin graphs 

    Kfoury, Assaf; Mirzaei, Saber (Computer Science Department, Boston University, 2015-09-01)
    We study the Optimal Linear Arrangement (OLA) problem of Halin graphs, one of the simplest classes of non-outerplanar graphs. We present several properties of OLA of general Halin graphs. We prove a lower bound on the cost ...
  • Scather: programming with multi-party computation and MapReduce 

    Volgushev, Nikolaj; Lapets, Andrei; Bestavros, Azer (Computer Science Department, Boston University, 2015-08-29)
    We present a prototype of a distributed computational infrastructure, an associated high level programming language, and an underlying formal framework that allow multiple parties to leverage their own cloud-based computational ...
  • Managing NFV using SDN and control theory 

    Akhtar, Nabeel; Matta, Ibrahim; Wang, Yuefeng (Computer Science Department, Boston University, 2015-12-14)
    Control theory and SDN (Software Defined Networking) are key components for NFV (Network Function Virtualization) deployment. However little has been done to use a control-theoretic approach for SDN and NFV management. In ...
  • Rational coordination of crowdsourced resources for geo-temporal request satisfaction 

    Bassem, Christine; Bestavros, Azer (Computer Science Department, Boston University, 2015-03-23)
    Existing mobile devices roaming around the mobility field should be considered as useful resources in geo-temporal request satisfaction. We refer to the capability of an application to access a physical device at particular ...
  • Scheduling of data-intensive workloads in a brokered virtualized environment 

    Bassem, Christine; Bestavros, Azer (Computer Science Department, Boston University, 2016-03-30)
    Providing performance predictability guarantees is increasingly important in cloud platforms, especially for data-intensive applications, for which performance depends greatly on the available rates of data transfer between ...
