Resource and Scheduling Management in Cloud ( 1 of 2)

A key challenge faced by providers when building a cloud infrastructure is managing physical and virtual resources according to user-resources' demands, with respect to the access time to the associated servers, the capacity needed for storage and the heterogeneity aspects traversing different networks in a holistic fashion. The organisation or, namely, the orchestration of resources must be performed in a way that rapidly and dynamically provides resources to applications.

Some challenges:

One can easily argue whether a company or an organisational body would be offering better services if these services can be easily migrated to the cloud. It is undoubtedly true that the cloud services present a simplistic view of IT in the case of IaaS or a simplistic view of programming notations in the case of PaaS or even a simplistic view of resources manipulation and utilisation in the case of SaaS. However, the underlying communicating mechanisms comprising of heterogeneous systems are formed in a highly complex way.

Managing Cloud resources:

Cloud resource management refers to the allocation of cloud resources, such as processor power, memory capacity and network bandwidth. The resource management system is the system responsible for allocating the cloud resources to users and applications. For any resource management system to become successful, it needs to flexibly utilise the available cloud resources whilst maintaining service isolation. The resource management system is expected to operate under the predefined QoS requirements as set by the customers. For this, resource management at cloud scale requires a rich set of resource management schemes that are capable to manage efficiently the provision of QoS requirements whilst maintaining total system efficiency. The greatest challenge for this optimisation problem is that of scalability.

Top 20 ultimate ETL Questions really good for interviews

How to print/display the first line of a file?  there are many ways to do this. However the easiest way to display the first line of a file is using the [head] command.  $> head -1 file. Txt no prize in guessing that if you specify [head -2] then it would print first 2 records of the file.  another way can be by using [sed] command. [sed] is a very powerful text editor which can be used for various text manipulation purposes like this.  $> sed '2,$ d' file. Txt how does the above command work?  The 'd' parameter basically tells [sed] to delete all the records from display from line 2 to last line of the file (last line is represented by $ symbol). Of course it does not actually delete those lines from the file, it just does not display those lines in standard output screen. So you only see the remaining line which is the 1st line.  how to print/display the last line of a file?  the easiest way is to use the [tail] command.  $> tail -1 file. Txt if you want to do it using…

The unique helpful SAN architecture simplified one

Storage Area Networks (SANs)

A SAN is connected behind the servers. SANs provide block-level access to shared data storage. Block level access refers to the specific blocks of data on a storage device as opposed to file level access. One file will contain several blocks. 

SANs provide high availability and robust business continuity for critical data environments. SANs are typically switched fabric architectures using Fibre Channel (FC) for connectivity. The term switched fabric refers to each storage unit being connected to each server via multiple SAN switches also called SAN directors which provide redundancy within the paths to the storage units. This provides additional paths for communications and eliminates one central switch as a single point of failure.Ethernet has many advantages similar to Fibre Channel for supporting SANs. Some of these include high speed, support of a switched fabric topology, widespread interoperability, and a large set of management tools. In a storage ne…
