This paper presents HeteroVisor, a heterogeneity-aware hypervisor, that exploits resource heterogeneity to enhance the elasticity of cloud systems. Introducing the notion of 'elasticity' (E) states, HeteroVisor permits applications to manage their changes in resource requirements as state transitions that implicitly move their execution among heterogeneous platform components. Masking the details of platform heterogeneity from virtual machines, the E-state abstraction allows applications to… CONTINUE READING
