In multi-tenanted environments such as data centers, various stakeholders have diverse goals. The objective of the infrastructure provider is to increase revenue by utilizing the resources efficiently. Applications, on the other hand, want to meet their performance requirements at minimal cost. In this talk, I will discuss the design of automated resource management systems that help meet the varied goals of the provider and applications in large-scale networked environments. The key steps in closed-loop resource management include learning of application resource needs, efficient scheduling of resources based on the estimated requirements, and adaptation to variations in real-time. I will describe how we apply this high-level approach in two distinct environments using (a) Morpheus in enterprise clusters, and (b) Patronus in cellular provider networks with geo-distributed micro data centers.
