Memcached is a key-value distributed memory object caching system. It is used widely in the data-center environment for caching results of database calls, API calls or any other data. Using Memcached, spare memory in data-center servers can be aggregated to speed up lookups of frequently accessed information. The performance of Memcached is directly related(More)
Hadoop Distributed File System (HDFS) acts as the primary storage of Hadoop and has been adopted by reputed organizations (Facebook, Yahoo! etc.) due to its portability and fault-tolerance. The existing implementation of HDFS uses Java-socket interface for communication which delivers suboptimal performance in terms of latency and throughput. For(More)
Hadoop RPC is the basic communication mechanism in the Hadoop ecosystem. It is used with other Hadoop components like MapReduce, HDFS, and HBase in real world data-centers, e.g. Facebook and Yahoo!. However, the current Hadoop RPC design is built on Java sockets interface, which limits its potential performance. The High Performance Computing community has(More)
High Performance Computing (HPC) systems are becoming increasingly complex and are also associated with very high operational costs. The cloud computing paradigm, coupled with modern Virtual Machine (VM) technology offers attractive techniques to easily manage large scale systems, while significantly bringing down the cost of computation, memory and(More)
Mem cached is a general-purpose key-value based distributed memory object caching system. It is widely used in data-center domain for caching results of database calls, API calls or page rendering. An efficient Mem cached design is critical to achieve high transaction throughput and scalability. Previous research in the field has shown that the use of high(More)
Storage Class Memory (SCM) blends the best properties of main memory and hard disk drives. It offers non-volatility and byte addressability, and promises short access times with low cost per bit. Earlier research in this field explored designs exploiting SCM features and used either simulations or theoretical models for evaluations. In this work, we explore(More)
HBase is an open source distributed Key/Value store based on the idea of Big Table. It is being used in many data-center Papplications (e.g. Face book, Twitter, etc.) because of its portability and massive scalability. For this kind of system, low latency and high throughput is expected when supporting services for large scale concurrent accesses. However,(More)
Unified Parallel C (UPC) is an emerging parallel programming language that is based on a shared memory paradigm. MPI has been a widely ported and dominant parallel programming model for the past couple of decades. Real-life scientific applications require a lot of investment by domain scientists. Many scientists choose the MPI programming model as it is(More)
Message Passing Interface (MPI) has been the defacto programming model for scientific parallel applications. However, data driven applications with irregular communication patterns are harder to implement using MPI. The Partitioned Global Address Space (PGAS) programming models present an alternative approach to improve programmability. Open SHMEM is a(More)
Many applications cache huge amount of data in RAM to achieve high performance. A good example is Memcached, a distributed-memory object-caching software. Memcached performance directly depends on the aggregated memory pool size. Given the constraints of hardware cost, power/thermal concerns and floor plan limits, it is difficult to further scale the memory(More)
