Cloud computing emerges as a new computing paradigm which aims to provide reliable, customized and QoS guaranteed computing dynamic environments for end-users. This paper reviews recent advances of Cloud computing, identifies the concepts and characters of scientific Clouds, and finally presents an example of scientific Cloud for data centers.
To enhance the overall performance of an application it is necessary to improve the cache access behavior. In this case, a cache visualizer is usually needed for fully understanding the runtime cache activities and the access pattern of applications. However, it does not suffice if only visualizing what happened. More importantly, a visualizer has to… (More)
—Recently, the computational requirements for large-scale data-intensive analysis of scientific data have grown significantly. In High Energy Physics (HEP) for example, the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) produced 13 petabytes of data in 2010. This huge amount of data are processed on more than 140 computing centers distributed across 34 countries. The… (More)
—To reduce the energy consumption and build a sustainable computer infrastructure now becomes a major goal of the high performance community. A number of research projects have been carried out in the field of energy-aware high performance computing. This paper is devoted to categorize energy-aware computing methods for the high-end computing… (More)
