As clouds increase in size and as machines of different types are added to the infrastructure in order to maximize performance and power efficiency, heterogeneous clouds are being created. However, exploiting different architectures poses significant challenges. To efficiently access heterogeneous resources and, at the same time, to exploit these resources to reduce application development effort, to make optimisations easier and to simplify service deployment, requires a re-evaluation of our… Expand
Heterogeneous Resource Management and Orchestration in Cloud Environments
TLDR
Two candidate approaches to an integrated approach to heterogeneous resource management that is cognizant of the unique advantages of different hardware types are introduced to address the management challenge of accelerated uptake of heterogeneous resources. Expand
