(2012-05-22)Given the growing reliance of industry and government on online information services such as cloud computing and data centers, efficient fault-tolerance algorithm design is of increasing importance in both industry and ...
(2004-05)We propose a framework to translate systems of differential equations into distributed protocols. The synthesized protocols are state machines containing probabilistic transitions and actions, and they show equivalent ...
(2004-05)Distributed run-time code generation is a useful technique that can easily be implemented using the technique known as ``compositional semantics.'' In this dissertation, we describe a new system, Jumbo, which adds run-time ...
(2011-08-25)The last decade has seen an explosive growth of both: (1) enterprise service-oriented software systems, for managing enterprise resources and automating business processes, and (2) user-centric, cloud-based web applications, ...
(2010-08-20)Data-intensive computing has emerged as a key player for processing large volumes of data exploiting massive parallelism. Data-intensive computing frameworks have shown that terabytes and petabytes of data can be routinely ...
(2010-01-06)Motivated by the increasing size of complex systems by mere interconnection of simple units, this dissertation considers a set of important open research problems related to the stability, identi fication, adaptation and ...
Turning Flash Crowds into Smart Mobs with Real-Time Stochastic Detection and Adaptive Cooperative Caching (2005-03)A flash crowd occurs when a stampede of clients attempt to access a resource, e.g., a Web page. It can cause drastic performance degradation at servers and clients, and even outage of the service. In this paper, we first ...
