Scheduling in Compute Cloud with Multiple Data Banks Using Divisible Load Paradigm

You are here

he main challenge in a compute cloud system is to design a scheduling strategy for heterogeneous computing resources with shared data banks. Cloud user’s job arrives at the web role, which distributes the load to worker rules for concurrent processing. The worker role retrieves the respective data from the shared data banks. According to divisible load theory, the scheduling problem is formulated as relevant recursive equations and constraints that are derived from continuity of processing time due to retrieval from multiple data banks. The scheduling problem in compute cloud is formulated as a linear programming problem. Finally, we present a satellite image classification problem in compute cloud as an example to show the adequacy of the proposed solution.
