Use cluster resources to implement resource deflation mechanisms and policies for distributed applications.

Intellectual Merit

This project tries to answer research questions surrounding dynamic resource allocation in virtualized clusters of distributed data processing and scientific computing applications. This allows increased resource efficiency and lower costs.

Broader Impacts

Applications developed will allow scientists and domain experts to run large scale data processing at lower costs.

Scale of Use

4-10 servers for 1 month. Longevity more important than number of servers.
