Resource provisioning in compute clouds often require an estimate of the capacity needs of Virtual Machines (VMs). The estimated VM size is the basis for allocating resources commensurate with workload demand. In contrast to the traditional practice of estimating the VM sizes individually, we propose a joint-VM sizing approach in which multiple VMs are(More)
With the widespread adoption of location tracking technologies like GPS, the domain of intelligent transportation services has seen growing interest in the last few years. Services in this domain make use of real-time location-based data from a variety of sources, combine this data with static location-based data such as maps and points of interest(More)
The paper proposes a structure for quality-of-service (QoS)-centered service level agreements (SLA), and a framework for their real-time management in multiservice packet networks. The SLA is structured to be fair to both parties, the service provider and their customer. The SLA considered here are for QoS assured delivery of aggregate bandwidth from(More)
In this paper we assess the benefits of using statistical techniques to ascertain the shareability of protection channels when computing shared mesh restored lightpaths. Current deterministic approaches require a detailed level of information proportional to the number of active lightpaths, and do not scale well as traffic demands and network grow. With the(More)
With the emergence of Yahoo Pipes and several similar services, data mashup tools have started to gain interest of business users. Making these tools simple and accessible ton users with no or little programming experience has become a pressing issue. In this paper we introduce MARIO (Mashup Automation with Runtime Orchestration and Invocation), a new tool(More)
Predicting arrival times of buses is a key challenge in the context of building intelligent public transportation systems. In this paper, we describe an efficient non-parametric algorithm which provides highly accurate predictions based on real-time GPS measurements. The key idea is to use a Kernel Regression model to represent the dependencies between(More)
ABC ADEC 2 ADEC 3 FGHC FDC 3 FDEC 3 3.3 Backup path reconfiguration Backup path reconfiguration aims to approximate optimal layout of the existing BPs. Since the BPs are used as cold standby, the traffic in the network is not disrupted. We propose a distributed coordinate backup-path reconfiguration algorithm. Unlike per flow based reconfiguration, our(More)
Intelligent mesh optical networks deployed today offer unparalleled capacity, flexibility, availability, and, inevitably, new challenges to master all these qualities in the most efficient and practical manner. More specifically, demands are routed according to the state of the network available at the moment. As the network and the traffic evolve, the(More)
In this paper, we propose a novel way of modeling Web services using folksonomies. The key advantage of our model is that it allows a large number of users to participate, easily, in annotating services with tags. This is in contrast to more expressive, logic based models of services, such as semantic Web service models, which require significant expertise(More)
This paper presents a collection of approximation formulas that allow a network planner to quickly estimate the size of a mesh optical network with limited inputs. In particular, it provides a set of equations that relate number of sites, average fiber connectivity, demand load and capacity for various mesh protection architectures. These results can be(More)
