Constrained Embedding Problems in Distributed Systems

Jorge Londono

Abstract:

We consider the problem of mapping an overlay into a hosting
infrastructure subject to constraints in the form of either QoS
parameters or special attributes and capabilities of the resources. This
problem appears in various settings, such as in testbed networks,
overlay networks, grid computing, sensor networks, among others.
Interestingly, the commonalities in all these cases let us consider the
problem from a general resource management perspective and identify the
issues and techniques applicable to all of them. Additionally, the ever
increasing adoption of virtualization technologies gives us an extra
degree of freedom that can be exploited for facilitating/optimizing the
allocation problem, but at the cost of more complexity at the time of
meeting the system's QoS constraints.

In this talk I will present a comparative overview of the current
research in this area and identify some of the open problems of
interest.
