This paper describes vCUDA, a GPGPU (General Purpose Graphics Processing Unit) computing solution for virtual machines. vCUDA allows applications executing within virtual machines (VMs) to leverage hardware acceleration, which can be beneficial to the performance of a class of high performance computing (HPC) applications. The key idea in our design is: API(More)
This paper addresses the problems in scheduling a precedence constrained tasks of parallel application with random tasks processing time and edges communication time on Grid computing systems so as to minimize the makespan in stochastic environment. This is a difficult problem and few efforts have been reported on its solution in the literature. The problem(More)
A new meta-heuristic method, called Chemical Reaction Optimization (CRO), has been proposed very recently. The method encodes solutions as molecules and mimics the interactions of molecules in chemical reactions to search the optimal solutions. The CRO method has demonstrated its capability in solving NP-hard optimization problems. In this paper, the CRO(More)
The growth of energy consumption has been explosive in current data centers, super computers, and public cloud systems. This explosion has led to greater advocacy of green computing, and many efforts and works focus on the task scheduling in order to reduce energy dissipation. In order to obtain more energy reduction as well as maintain the quality of(More)
In the past few years, with the rapid development of heterogeneous computing systems (HCS), the issue of energy consumption has attracted a great deal of attention. How to reduce energy consumption is currently a critical issue in designing HCS. In response to this challenge, many energy-aware scheduling algorithms have been developed primarily using the(More)
The current works about MapReduce task scheduling with deadline constraints neither take the differences of Map and Reduce task, nor the cluster’s heterogeneity into account. This paper proposes an extensional MapReduce Task Scheduling algorithm for Deadline constraints in Hadoop platform: MTSD. It allows user specify a job’s deadline and tries to make the(More)
Effective task scheduling is essential for obtaining high performance in heterogeneous computing systems (HCS). However, finding an effective task schedule in HCS, requires the consideration of the heterogeneity of computation and communication. To solve this problem, we present a list scheduling algorithm, called Heterogeneous Earliest Finish with(More)
