A working single system image distributed operating system is presented. Dubbed Kerrighed, it provides a unified approach and support to both the MPI and the shared memory programming models. The system is operational in a 16-processor cluster at the Institut de Recherche en Informatique et Systemes Aleatoires in Rennes, France. In this paper, the system is(More)
Energy efficiency has now become one of the major design constraints for current and future cloud data center operators. One way to conserve energy is to transition idle servers into a lower power-state (e.g. suspend). Therefore, virtual machine (VM) placement and dynamic VM scheduling algorithms are proposed to facilitate the creation of idle times.(More)
Process management mechanisms (process duplication, migration and checkpoint/restart) are very useful for high performance and high availability in clustering systems. The single system image approach aims at providing a global process management service with mechanisms for process checkpoint, process migration and process duplication. In this context, a(More)
Writing parallel programs for clusters of workstations is still a challenging task. In this paper, we present Kerrighed, a Single System Image (SSI) operating system giving the illusion of an SMP machine, and providing the standard posix thread interface to developers. It is therefore possible to use Kerrighed to run OpenMP programs compiled for(More)
BonFIRE is a multi-site test bed that supports testing of Cloud-based and distributed applications. BonFIRE breaks the mould of commercial Cloud offerings by providing unique functionality in terms of observability, control, advanced Cloud features and ease of use for experimentation. A number of successful use cases have been executed on BonFIRE, involving(More)
Almost ten years after its premises, the Grid’5000 testbed has become one of the most complete testbed for designing or evaluating large-scale distributed systems. Initially dedicated to the study of High Performance Computing, the infrastructure has evolved to address wider concerns related to Desktop Computing, the Internet of Services and more recently(More)
Realistic experimentation facilities are indispensable to accelerate the design of novel Future Internet systems. As many of these ground-breaking new applications and services cover multiple innovation areas, the need for these solutions to be tested on cross-domain facilities with both novel infrastructure technologies and newly emerging service platforms(More)
