Today's links 14/07/2015: #google cluster data, Usenix and Hotstorage conference and papers.


  • Cluster data : The clusterdata-2011-2 trace represents 29 day's worth of cell information from May 2011, on a cluster of about 11k machines at google.
  • Failure and characterization of jobs at google : publication using the above dataset.
  • Usenix and Hotstorage : Usenix conference , notable paper: 
    • Grappa : enables users to program a cluster as if it were a single, large, non-uniform memory access (NUMA) machine. Performance scales up even for applications that have poor locality and input-dependent load distribution. Grappa addresses deficiencies of previous DSM systems by exploiting application parallelism, trading off latency for throughput [website] .
    • mARC : an improved ARC cache mechanism
    • BeeHive : erasure code with even more fault tolerance built in
