Cloud computing has emerged as a popular mechanism for deploying services and running applications. A key feature of many cloud environments is the use of virtual machines (VMs) as the unit of resource allocation. Multiple virtual machines running the same application may be co-located on a...
Virtual machines (VMs) are useful mechanisms for better resource utilization, support for special software configurations, and the movement of packaged software across systems. Exploiting VM advantages in a production setting, however, often requires computer systems with the smallest possible...
Variations between the software environments(e.g., installed applications, versions of libraries) on different high-performance computing (HPC) systems lead to a heterogeneity problem. Therefore, we design an optimized, homogeneous virtual machine (VM) called a virtual application appliance...
