— We propose a novel approach for sharing cluster resources among competing jobs. The key advantage of our approach over current solutions is that it increases cluster utilization while optimizing a user-centric metric that captures both notions of performance and fairness. We motivate and formalize the corresponding resource allocation problem, determine(More)
Commodity clusters are used routinely for deploying service hosting platforms. Due to hardware and operation costs, clusters need to be shared among multiple services. Crucial for enabling such shared hosting platforms is virtual machine (VM) technology, which allows consolidation of hardware resources. A key challenge, however, is to make appropriate(More)
—Spatiotemporal databases are utilized in many applications to store the trajectories of moving objects. In this context, we focus on in-memory distance threshold queries that return all trajectories found within a distance d of a fixed or moving object over a time interval. We present performance results for a sequential query processing algorithm that(More)
Methods that integrate population-level sampling from multiple taxa into a single community-level analysis are an essential addition to the comparative phylogeographic toolkit. Detecting how species within communities have demographically tracked each other in space and time is important for understanding the effects of future climate and landscape changes(More)
