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.

The best 5 differences of AWS EMR and Hadoop

With Amazon Elastic MapReduce (Amazon EMR) you can analyze and process vast amounts of data. It does this by distributing the computational work across a cluster of virtual servers running in the Amazon cloud. The cluster is managed using an open-source framework called Hadoop.

Amazon EMR has made enhancements to Hadoop and other open-source applications to work seamlessly with AWS. For example, Hadoop clusters running on Amazon EMR use EC2 instances as virtual Linux servers for the master and slave nodes, Amazon S3 for bulk storage of input and output data, and CloudWatch to monitor cluster performance and raise alarms.

You can also move data into and out of DynamoDB using Amazon EMR and Hive. All of this is orchestrated by Amazon EMR control software that launches and manages the Hadoop cluster. This process is called an Amazon EMR cluster.


What does Hadoop do...

Hadoop uses a distributed processing architecture called MapReduce in which a task is mapped to a set of servers for proce…

5 Things About AWS EC2 You Need to Focus!

Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) - is a web service that provides resizable compute capacity in the cloud. It is designed to make web-scale cloud computing easier for developers.
Amazon EC2’s simple web service interface allows you to obtain and configure capacity with minimal friction.

The basic functions of EC2... 
It provides you with complete control of your computing resources and lets you run on Amazon’s proven computing environment.Amazon EC2 reduces the time required to obtain and boot new server instances to minutes, allowing you to quickly scale capacity, both up and down, as your computing requirements change.Amazon EC2 changes the economics of computing by allowing you to pay only for capacity that you actually use. Amazon EC2 provides developers the tools to build failure resilient applications and isolate themselves from common failure scenarios. 
Key Points for Interviews:

EC2 is the basic fundamental block around which the AWS are structured.EC2 provides remote ope…
