A new type of implicit bit allocation (IBA) is studied for the combined coarse granular scalability (CGS) and spatial scalability. Given a region which is a quality level at a spatial resolution and an input of weighting factor in the region that is determined by customers' interest, the IBA is formulated as a multiple objective optimization problem. The IBA exhibits ...

We propose the energy scalability and power-delay product scalability as new metrics for calculating and estimating boundaries on the energy overhead of parallel processing systems. Because both properties consider network topology and the algorithm to be implemented, they are shown to be effective in predicting the energy scalability of a multiprocessor in the most general case. Power-delay scalability is then ...

Wavelet transform based image coding algorithms have the two inherent scalable features of SNR scalability and spatial (or resolution) scalability. However, fine scalability is supported only for the SNR, but spatial scalability is usually restricted to scales of powers of two which may not be considered fine. In this paper, we introduce the fine spatial scalability to wavelet transform based ...

  • Scalability, Workloads, and Performance: Replication, Popularity, Modeling, and Geo‐Distributed File Stores

    This chapter explores the problems of scalability of cloud computing systems. Scalability allows a cloud application to change in size, volume, or geographical distribution while meeting the needs of the cloud customer. A practical approach to scaling cloud applications is to improve the availability of the application by replicating the resources and files used; this includes creating multiple copies of the application across many nodes in the cloud. Replication improves availability through use of redundant resources, services, networks, file systems, and nodes, but also creates problems with respect to clients' ability to observe consistency as they are served from the multiple copies. Variability in data sizes, volumes, and the homogeneity and performance of the cloud components (disks, memory, networks, and processors) can impact scalability. Evaluating scalability is difficult, especially when there is a large degree of variability. That leads to the need to estimate how applications will scale on clouds based on probabilistic estimates of job load and performance. Scaling can have many different dimensions and properties. The emergence of low‐latency worldwide services and the desire to have higher fault tolerance and reliability has led to the design of geo‐distributed storage with replicas in multiple locations. At the end of this chapter, we consider scalability in terms of the issues involved with cloud services that are geo‐distributed and also study, as a case example, scalable geo‐distributed storage.

  • MPEG-4 Beyond Conventional Video Coding: Object Coding, Resilience, and Scalability

    An important merit of the MPEG-4 video standard is that it not only provided tools and algorithms for enhancing the compression efficiency of existing MPEG-2 and H.263 standards but also contributed key innovative solutions for new multimedia applications such as real-time video streaming to PCs and cell phones over Internet and wireless networks, interactive services, and multimedia access. Many of these solutions are currently used in practice or have been important stepping-stones for new standards and technologies. In this book, we do not aim at providing a complete reference for MPEG-4 video as many excellent references on the topic already exist. Instead, we focus on three topics that we believe formed key innovations of MPEG-4 video and that will continue to serve as an inspiration and basis for new, emerging standards, products, and technologies. The three topics highlighted in this book are object-based coding and scalability, Fine Granularity Scalability, and error resilience tools. This book is aimed at engineering students as well as professionals interested in learning about these MPEG-4 technologies for multimedia streaming and interaction. Finally, it is not aimed as a substitute or manual for the MPEG-4 standard, but rather as a tutorial focused on the principles and algorithms underlying it.

  • Scalability Challenges in Web Search Engines

    In this book, we aim to provide a fairly comprehensive overview of the scalability and efficiency challenges in large-scale web search engines. More specifically, we cover the issues involved in the design of three separate systems that are commonly available in every web-scale search engine: web crawling, indexing, and query processing systems. We present the performance challenges encountered in these systems and review a wide range of design alternatives employed as solution to these challenges, specifically focusing on algorithmic and architectural optimizations. We discuss the available optimizations at different computational granularities, ranging from a single computer node to a collection of data centers. We provide some hints to both the practitioners and theoreticians involved in the field about the way large- scale web search engines operate and the adopted design choices. Moreover, we survey the efficiency literature, providing pointers to a large number of relatively important research papers. Finally, we discuss some open research problems in the context of search engine efficiency.
