Spot Pricing Repository

Cloud computing has become an almost ubiquitous part of the computing landscape. For many companies today, moving their entire infrastructure and workloads to the cloud reduces complexity, time to deployment, and saves money. Spot Instances, a subset of Amazon’s cloud computing infrastructure (EC2), expands on this. They allow a user to bid on spare compute […]

MetaHeuristics in the Large

Metaheuristics are procedures that are used to choose between heuristic techniques. They sample a set of solutions that is too large to be completely searched. There is a pressing need for a higher-level architectural perspective in metaheuristics research. A key obstacle is that metaheuristic components suffer from an intrinsic lack of modularity. Building on a […]

Parallel Program Shaping

Software development approaches are not keeping pace with the current trends towards increasingly parallel multi-core/many-core hardware. Most applications programmers are not experts in parallellism, so knowing when and where to effectively deploy parallelism can seem ad-hoc or even impossible. Parallel patterns are high-level entities that abstract away the tedious and complex low-level parallelism code. Like […]
