We believe that a market-based resource allocation will be effective in a cloud computing environment where resources are virtualized and delivered to users as services. We propose such a market mechanism to allocate services to participants efficiently. The mechanism enables users (1) to order a combination of services for workflows and co-allocations and(More)
As the scales of parallel applications and platforms increase the negative impact of communication latencies on performance becomes large. Random network topologies can be used to achieve low hop counts between nodes and thus low latency. However, random topologies lead to increased aggregate cable length and cable packaging complexity on a machine room(More)
Various network topologies can be used for deploying High Performance Computing (HPC) clusters. The network topology, which connects switches In cabinets on a machine room floor, is typically defined once and for all at system deployment time. For a diverse application workload, there are downsides to having a single wired topology. In this work, we propose(More)
With low-delay switches on the horizon, end-to-end latency in large-scale High Performance Computing (HPC) interconnects will be dominated by cable delays. In this context we define a new network topology, Skywalk, for deploying low-latency interconnects in upcoming HPC systems. Skywalk uses randomness to achieve low latency, but does so in a way that(More)
In this paper, we demonstrate that we can reduce the communication latency significantly by inserting a fraction of randomness into a wireless 3D NoC (where CMOS wireless links are used for vertical inter-chip communication) when considering the physical constraints of the 3D design space. Towards this end, we consider two cases, namely 1) replacing(More)
As the scales of supercomputers increase total cable length becomes enormous, e.g., up to thousands of kilometers. Recent high-radix switches with dozens of ports make switch layout and system packaging more complex. In this study, we study the optimization of the physical layout of topologies of switches on a machine room floor with the goal of reducing(More)

In this paper, we propose an information assistance system and an algorithm for distributed rescue agents to improve their rescue activities. To save victims, finding them is quite important. We introduce a small intelligent device called "intelligent data carrier for rescue (IDC-R)" and a mediator blimp in ode r to search victims. Then, we propose an(More)
Network bandwidth is a performance concern especially for collective communication because the bisection bandwidth of recent supercomputers is far less than their full bisection bandwidth. In this context we propose to exploit the use of a network coding technique to reduce the number of unicasts and the size of transferred data generated by(More)
Random network topologies have been proposed to create low-diameter, low-latency interconnection networks in large-scale computing systems. However, these topologies are difficult to deploy in practice, especially when re-designing existing systems, because they lead to increased total cable length and cable packaging complexity. In this work we propose a(More)
