Server consolidation is an important problem in any enterprise, where capital allocators (CAs) must approve any cost saving plans involving the acquisition or allocation of new assets and the decommissioning of inefficient assets. Our paper describes iVMp an interactive VM placement algorithm, that allows CAs to become 'agile' capital allocators that can(More)
Searching for people by exploration of social networks structure is an interesting problem which has recently gathered a lot of attention. Expert recommendation is an important but also extensively researched problem. In contrast, the generalized problem of team recommendation has not been studied a lot. The purpose of this demo is to show a(More)
Distributed simulations require partitioning mechanisms to operate, and the best partitioning algorithms try to load-balance the partitions. Dynamic load-balancing, i.e. re-partitioning simulation environments at run-time, becomes essential when the load in the partitions change. In decentralised distributed simulation the information needed to dynamically(More)
Server consolidation is the most common and effective method to save energy and increase resource utilization in data centers, and virtual machine (VM) placement is the usual way of achieving server consolidation. VM placement is however challenging given the scale of IT infrastructures nowadays and the risk of resource contention among co-located VMs after(More)
Using the Cloud for large-scale distributed simulations, such as agent-based traffic simulations, sounds like a good idea, as it is possible to provision and release easily processing nodes (e.g., Virtual machines) in the Cloud. However, the question is complex as it involves users' objectives, such as, time to process the simulation and cost of the(More)
In semantic web applications where query initiators and information providers do not necessarily share the same ontology, semantic interoperability generally relies on ontology matching or schema map-pings. Information exchange is then not only enabled by the established correspondences (the " shared " parts of the ontologies) but, in some sense, limited to(More)
Team recommendation aids decision support, by not only identifying individuals who are experts for various aspects of a complex task, but also determining various properties of the team as a group. Several aspects such as cohesion and repetition of teams have been identified as important indicators, besides individuals' expertise, in determining how well a(More)
Data center optimization, mainly through virtual machine (VM) placement, has received considerable attention in the past years. A lot of heuristics have been proposed to give quick and reasonably good solutions to this problem. However it is difficult to compare them as they use different datasets, while the distribution of resources in the datasets has a(More)
