High Availability of Services in Wide-Area Shared Computing Networks

I finally managed to put together the final report for the research that I have been doing. Unfortunately, we only managed to get access to planetLab less than a week before the final delivery (sending lots of emails to multiple entities). We could only do minor experiments on it. As always, I am a bit‚Ķ Read More »

Just got parsec running after a few tweaks and managed to change its‚Ķ Read More »

Autonomically Scalable Services in WAN

So I’ve got only three days left to research on the area and¬†fortunately a big headache as well. Nothing like a pill, coffee and we’re good to go! At least I can blame any inconsistency in what I write with my physical state ūüėõ After reading “Resource-Aware Migratory Services in Wide-Area Shared Computing Environments”, I‚Ķ Read More »

Resource-Aware Migratory Services in WAN

So as promised, I’ll give my opinion on the paper “Resource-Aware Migratory Services in Wide-Area Shared Computing Environments. I was really entertained while reading it, overall easy to follow and interesting. So to begin, since this work highly depends on Ajanta mobile agent system (*), I think that this paper should give a very brief‚Ķ Read More »
