—The use of virtualization technologies in high performance computing (HPC) environments has traditionally been avoided due to their inherent performance overhead. However, with the rise of container-based virtualization implementations , such as Linux VServer, OpenVZ and Linux Containers (LXC), it is possible to obtain a very low overhead leading to(More)
—The rise of Internet of Things sensors, social networking and mobile devices has led to an explosion of available data. Gaining insights into this data has led to the area of Big Data analytics. The MapReduce framework, as implemented in Hadoop, is one of the most popular frameworks for Big Data analysis. To handle the ever-increasing data size, Hadoop is(More)
—Virtualization as a platform for resource-intensive applications, such as MapReduce (MR), has been the subject of many studies in the last years, as it has brought benefits such as better manageability, overall resource utilization, security and scalability. Nevertheless, because of the performance overheads, virtualization has traditionally been avoided(More)
Metagenomic sequencing technologies are advancing rapidly and the size of output data from high-throughput genetic sequencing has increased substantially over the years. This brings us to a scenario where advanced computational optimizations are requested to perform a metagenomic analysis. In this paper, we describe a new parallel implementation of(More)
—As data volumes and the need for timely analysis grow, Big Data analytics frameworks have to scale out to hundred or even thousands of commodity servers. While such a scale-out is crucial to sustain desired computational throughput/latency and storage capacity, it comes at the cost of increased network traffic volumes and multiplicity of traffic patterns.(More)
