Our researchers have participated in the 1st Workshop on High-Performance and Reliable Big Data (HPBD 2021), which was held virtually on September 20th 2021, and was co-located with the 40th International Symposium on Reliable Distributed Systems (SRDS 2021).
In consideration of the capabilities of IoT devices for globally distributed computational processing, it is essential to schedule workloads across the various geographic locations available. Geolocate is a generic scheduling system that accounts for both the available computational resources and the geographical location of nodes when deploying workloads.
The paper presented at this workshop entitled “Geolocate: A geolocation-aware scheduling system for Edge Computing” shows that Geolocate has similar performance to other schedulers and can achieve average gains of about 62% in the response times of scheduled applications when considering latency issues.
The HPBD workshop had five accepted papers and aims at bringing together researchers across the world in order to solve these new challenges and help building a better understanding about the new directions on big data systems research.
