  • Fuzzy Workload Orchestration for Edge Computing

    Edge computing is based on the philosophy that the data should be processed within the locality of its source. Edge computing is entering a new phase where it gains wide acceptance from both academia and the industry as the commercial deployments are starting. Edge of the network presents a very dynamic environment with many devices, intermittent traffic, high mobility of the end user, heterogeneous applications and their requirements. In this scene, scalable and efficient management & orchestration remains to be a problem. We focus on the workload orchestration problem in which execution locations for incoming tasks from mobile devices are decided within an edge computing infrastructure, including the global cloud as well. Workload orchestration is an intrinsically hard, online problem. We employ a Fuzzy Logic based approach to solve this problem by capturing the intuition of a real world administrator to get an automated management system. Our approach takes into consideration the properties of the offloaded task as well as the current state of the computational and networking resources. Detailed set of experiments are designed with EdgeCloudSim to demonstrate the competitive performance of our approach for different service classes.

  • Coflow Scheduling in the Multi-resource Environment

    In data centers, a lot of cluster computing applications follow the coflow working pattern. That is, a collection of flows between two groups of machines is semantically related. On the other hand, network function virtualization (NFV) sufficiently improves the performance of data center networks. It, however, complicates the network environment by introducing many multi- function middleboxes each with multiple resources. Coflows encounter extremely different processing delays under diverse network functions. Prior coflow scheduling schemes are insufficient to guarantee the coflow completion time (CCT) in the multi-resource environment. In this paper, we propose, model, and analyze the coflow scheduling problem in the multi-resource environment. We present a dedicated method, DRGC (Data Rate Guarantee for Coflow), to guarantee the data rate requirements of coflows in this situation. DRGC prioritizes the coflow scheduling sequence, assigns precise data rates for coflows, and deploys a packet scheduling algorithm at middleboxes to guarantee their transmissions. In our experiments, DRGC efficiently guarantees the completion times of coflows and supports 15% more workload, compared with other scheduling schemes.

  • Proactive and Hitless vSDN Reconfiguration to Balance Substrate TCAM Utilization: From Algorithm Design to System Prototype

    The combination of network virtualization and software-defined networking (SDN) enables an infrastructure provider (InP) to create software-defined virtual networks (vSDNs) over a shared substrate network (SNT), for supporting new network services more timely and cost-effectively. Meanwhile, as both the services and traffic in the Internet are becoming more and more dynamic, how to properly maintain vSDNs in a dynamic network environment exhibits increasing importance but still has not been fully explored. In this work, we conduct a study on how to realize proactive and hitless vSDN reconfiguration to balance the utilization of ternary content-addressable memory (TCAM) in a dynamic SNT. Specifically, we consider both algorithm design and system prototyping. From the algorithmic perspective, we try to solve the problems of “what to reconfigure" and “how to reconfigure". A selection algorithm is designed to proactively choose the virtual switches (vSWs) that should be migrated to other substrate switches (S-SWs) for balancing TCAM utilization, i.e., solving “what to reconfigure". Then, for the problem of “how to reconfigure", i.e., where to re-map the selected vSWs and the virtual links (VLs) connecting to them, we formulate a mixed integer linear programming (MILP) model to solve it exactly, and design two heuristics to improve time efficiency. Next, we move to the system part, implement the proposed algorithms in our protocol-oblivious forwarding (POF) enabled network virtualization hypervisor (NVH) system, and conduct experiments to demonstrate proactive and hitless vSDN reconfiguration. The experimental results indicate that our proposal does make vSDN reconfiguration transparent to the vSDNs’ virtual controllers (vCs) and proactive, and when reconfiguring a vSDN with live traffic, it achieves hitless operations without traffic disruption.

  • Group Mobility Detection and User Connectivity Models for Evaluation of Mobile Network Functions

    Group mobility in mobile networks is responsible for dynamic changes in user accesses to base stations, which eventually lead to degradation of network quality of service (QoS). In particular, the rapid movement of a dense group of users intensively accessing the network, such as passengers on a train passing through a densely populated area, significantly affects the perceived network QoS. For better design and operation of mobile network facilities and functions in response to this issue, monitoring group mobility and modeling the access patterns in group mobility scenarios are essential. In this paper, we focus on fast and dense group mobility and mobile network signaling data (control-plane data), which contains information related to mobility and connectivity. Firstly, we develop a lightweight method of group mobility detection to extract train passengers from all users' signaling data without relying on precise location information about users, e.g., based on GPS. Secondly, based on the same signaling data and the results obtained by the detection method, we build connected/idle duration models for train users and non-train users. Finally, we leverage these models in mobile network simulations to assess the effectiveness of a dynamic base station switching/orientation scheme to mitigate QoS degradation with low power consumption in a group mobility scenario. The obtained models reveal that train users consume 3.5 times more resources than non-train users, which proves that group mobility has a significant effect on mobile networks. The simulation results show that the dynamic scheme of base station improves users' perceived throughput, latency and jitter with small amount of additional power consumption in case of a moderate number of train users, but its ineffectiveness with larger number of train users is also shown. This would suggest that group mobility detection and the obtained connection/idle duration models based solely on control-plane data analytics are usable and useful for the development of mobility-aware functions in base stations.

  • Energy-Efficient Resource Allocation and Provisioning Framework for Cloud Data Centers

    Energy efficiency has recently become a major issue in large data centers due to financial and environmental concerns. This paper proposes an integrated energy-aware resource provisioning framework for cloud data centers. The proposed framework: i) predicts the number of virtual machine (VM) requests, to be arriving at cloud data centers in the near future, along with the amount of CPU and memory resources associated with each of these requests, ii) provides accurate estimations of the number of physical machines (PMs) that cloud data centers need in order to serve their clients, and iii) reduces energy consumption of cloud data centers by putting to sleep unneeded PMs. Our framework is evaluated using real Google traces collected over a 29-day period from a Google cluster containing over 12,500 PMs. These evaluations show that our proposed energy-aware resource provisioning framework makes substantial energy savings.

  • Efficient Network Modification to Improve QoS Stability at Failures

    When a link or node fails, flows are detoured around the failed portion, so the hop count of flows and the link load could change dramatically as a result of the failure. As real-time traffic such as video or voice increases on the Internet, ISPs are required to provide stable quality as well as connectivity at failures. For ISPs, how to effectively improve the stability of these qualities at failures with the minimum investment cost is an important issue, and they need to effectively select a limited number of locations to add link facilities. In this paper, efficient design algorithms to select the locations for adding link facilities are proposed and their effectiveness is evaluated using the actual backbone networks of 36 commercial ISPs.

  • Optimization Model for Designing Multiple Virtualized Campus Area Networks Coordinating With Wide Area Networks

    We propose an optimization model for designing multiple network functions virtualization (NFV)-based campus area networks (CANs). Organizations, such as universities and research institutions have their own campus information and communication technology equipment, but many would like to move this equipment to NFV and cloud data centers for improving reliability and resiliency. However, NFV-based CAN is not affordable for them, because costs are higher with a cloud. One solution is for multiple organizations to procure NFV and cloud data center resources together. By doing so, their individual costs of using these resources will be reduced. To make progress on this approach, there are planning issues to resolve when choosing optimal NFV and cloud data center locations. The proposed model minimizes the total network costs incurred by the organizations, including the wide area network cost and data synchronization costs for recovery from faults at data centers and the various subcampus network configurations of legacy CANs. The model is formulated and analyzed by using mixed integer linear programming. The effect of cost minimization is evaluated in a ladder network and an actual network, SINET5, and it is found that the costs can be reduced by up to 63%. The calculation times of this model under practical conditions are short and the model will be useful in practice. It is also shown that the cost of fault recovery can be suppressed. These results will encourage organizations to deploy NFV-based CANs.

  • Cost Efficient Design of Fault Tolerant Geo-Distributed Data Centers

    Many critical e-commerce and financial services are deployed on geo- distributed data centers for scalability and availability. Recent market surveys show that failure of a data center is inevitable resulting in a huge financial loss. Fault-tolerance in distributed data centers is typically handled by provisioning spare capacity to mask failure at a site. We argue that the operating cost and data replication cost (for data availability) must be considered in spare capacity provisioning along with minimizing the number of servers. Since the operating cost and client demand vary across space and time, we propose cost-aware capacity provisioning to minimize the total cost of ownership (TCO) for fault-tolerant data centers. We formulate the problem of spare capacity provisioning in fault-tolerant distributed data centers using mixed integer linear programming (MILP), with an objective of minimizing the TCO. The model accounts for heterogeneous client demand, data replication strategies (single and multiple site), variation in electricity price and carbon tax, and delay constraints while computing the spare capacity. Solving the MILP using real-world data, we observed a saving in the TCO to the tune of 35% compared to a model that minimizes the total number of servers and 43% compared to the model that minimizes the average response time. We demonstrate that our model is beneficial when the cost of electricity, carbon tax, and bandwidth vary significantly across the locations, which seems to be the problem for most of the operators.

  • Practical Network-Wide Compression of IP Routing Tables

    The memory Internet routers use to store paths to destinations is expensive, and must be continually upgraded in the face of steadily increasing routing table size. Unfortunately, routing protocols are not designed to gracefully handle cases where memory becomes full, which arises increasingly often due to misconfigurations and routing table growth. Hence router memory must typically be heavily overprovisioned by network operators, inflating operating costs and administrative effort. The research community has primarily focused on clean- slate solutions that cannot interoperate with the deployed base of protocols. This paper presents an incrementally-deployable Memory Management System (MMS) that reduces associated router state by up to 70%. The MMS coalesces prefixes to reduce memory consumption and can be deployed locally on each router or centrally on a route server. The system can operate transparently, without requiring changes in other ASes. Our memory manager can extend router lifetimes up to seven years, given current prefix growth trends.
