Title: NRG Meeting: Revisiting Network Resource Allocation in Data Centers  
(Fahad Dogar, Tufts University)
Title: Revisiting Network Resource Allocation in Data Centers
Presenter: Fahad Dogar

Popular applications like Facebook and Google Search perform rich and
complex "tasks" (e.g., generating a user's social newsfeed). From a
network perspective, these tasks typically comprise multiple flows,
which traverse different parts of the network at potentially different
times. Existing network resource allocation schemes (e.g., TCP),
however, treat all these flows in isolation - rather than as part of a
task - which delays completion of tasks (i.e., user requests).

In this talk, I will make a case for "task-aware" network scheduling,
and present Baraat, a decentralized task-aware scheduling system.
Compared to existing approaches (e.g., TCP and other flow based
schemes), Baraat improves both the average and tail response times for
a wide range of workloads. I will also present a deployment friendly
transport framework (PASE) which can support richer resource
allocation schemes (e.g., task-aware scheduling) without requiring
changes to network switches.

Both Baraat and PASE appeared in ACM Sigcomm 2014. Joint work with
researchers from MSR, MSU, and LUMS.

Fahad Dogar is an assistant professor in the computer science
department at Tufts University. Earlier he did his PhD from Carnegie
Mellon and undergrad from LUMS, Pakistan. Most recently, he was a
post-doc in the systems and networking group at Microsoft Research UK.
