—Wireless sensor networks (WSNs) are emerging as essential and popular ways of providing pervasive computing environments for various applications. In all these environments energy constraint is the most critical problem that must be considered. Clustering is introduced to WSNs because of its network scalability, energy-saving attributes and network… (More)
With the development of the computer technology, the virtual machine has been become the main research topic. Understanding of the current technology and future trends of virtual machine system greatly help to improve the service performance of system. Therefore, we describe the current technology and present the future trends of virtual machine system in… (More)
approximately achieve the equilibrium state, that is, demand and supply is nearly balanced, which validates that ARAS-M is effective and practicable, and is capable of achieving resource balance in cloud computing.
— In this paper, a new genetic algorithm for solving multi-constrained optimization problems based on KS function is proposed. Firstly, utilizing the agglomeration features of KS function, all constraints of optimization problems are agglomerated to only one constraint. Then, we use genetic algorithm to solve the optimization problem after the compression… (More)
—With the scale of computing system increases, system performance and reliability, described by various Quality of Service(QoS) metrics, cannot be guaranteed if only the objective is to minimize the total power consumptions separately, despite of the violations of QoS. In this paper a feedback control based power aware job scheduling algorithm is proposed… (More)
Most of the existing job scheduling algorithms for grids have ignored the security problem with a handful of exceptions. Moreover, existing algorithms using fixed- number job replications will consume excessive resources when grid security level changes dynamically. In this paper, a security aware and fault tolerant scheduling (SAFTS) algorithm based on… (More)
—Security assurance is a critical requirement for QoS or SLA satisfactions in risky grid environments because jobs may be scheduled to multiple machines across different distributed administrative domains. Unlike conventional methods using fixed-number job replications, in this paper, we propose a security-aware parallel and independent job scheduling… (More)
