Usage Patterns to Provision for Scientific Experimentation in Clouds
Abstract--Driven by the need to provision resources on demand, scientists are turning to commercial and research test-bed Cloud computing resources to run their scientific experiments. Job scheduling on cloud computing resources, unlike earlier platforms, is a balance between throughput and cost of executions. Within this context, we posit that usage patterns can improve the job execution, because these patterns allow a system to plan, stage and optimize scheduling decisions. This paper introduces a novel approach to utilization of user patterns drawn from knowledgebased techniques, to improve execution across a series of active workflows and jobs in cloud computing environments. Using empirical analysis we establish the accuracy of our prediction approach for two different workloads and demonstrate how this knowledge can be used to improve job executions.
