Serverless Computing: Current Trends and Open Problems
This chapter surveys existing serverless platforms from industry, academia, and open-source projects, identifies key characteristics and use cases, and describes technical challenges and open problems. Expand
Web Services Invocation Framework (WSIF)
This paper proposes a framework that allows the application-programmer to program against an abstract service description, in a protocol-independent manner. We call this framework the Web ServicesExpand
Apache airavata: a framework for distributed applications and computational workflows
The architecture of Airavata and its modules are discussed, and how the software can be used as individual components or as an integrated solution to build science gateways or general-purpose distributed application and workflow management systems are illustrated. Expand
Serving Deep Learning Models in a Serverless Platform
The experimental results show that while the inferencing latency can be within an acceptable range, longer delays due to cold starts can skew the latency distribution and hence risk violating more stringent SLAs. Expand
Status of Serverless Computing and Function-as-a-Service(FaaS) in Industry and Research
This whitepaper summarizes issues raised during the First International Workshop on Serverless Computing (WoSC) 2017 held June 5th 2017 and especially in the panel and associated discussion thatExpand
Performance comparison of security mechanisms for grid services
This paper introduces various security mechanisms for grid services, and shows that transport level security (SSL) is faster than message level security, and should be used if there is no special requirement to use messagelevel security. Expand
Adapting BPEL to Scientific Workflows
In this chapter, we examine the degree to which a de facto standard business Web services workflow language, Business Process Execution Language for Web Services (BPEL4WS), can be used to composeExpand
On Building Parallel & Grid Applications: Component Technology and Distributed Services
This work describes progress that has been made on the common component architecture model (CCA) and discusses its success and limitations when applied to problems in grid computing, concluding that a component model fits very well with a services-oriented grid, but the model of composition must allow for a very dynamic control of composition.

A Benchmark Suite for SOAP-based Communication in Grid Web Services
A standard benchmark suite for quantifying, comparing, and contrasting the performance of SOAP implementations under a wide range of representative use cases is proposed and a snapshot of the current SOAP implementation landscape is provided. Expand
WS-Messenger: a Web services-based messaging system for service-oriented grid computing
Performance tests indicate WS-Messenger performs better than the WS-Notification implementation in Globus Toolkit 4 (GT4) and it can be used as a complement to GT4 to improve its scalability. Expand
