A Tree-based Protocol for Enforcing Quotas in Clouds
2014 (English)In: the IEEE 10th 2014 World Congress on Services (SERVICES 2014), IEEE Computer Society, 2014Conference paper (Refereed)
Services are more and more hosted on cloud nodes for enhancing their performance and increasing their availability. The virtually unlimited availability of resources enables service owners to consume resources without quantitative restrictions, paying only for what they consume. To avoid cost overrun, resource consumption must be controlled and capped when necessary.We present a distributed tree-based protocol to manage quotas in clouds that minimizes communication overhead and reduces the time required to inspect if a quota has been exhausted. Experimental evaluation shows that our protocol provides 42% more communication savings and is up to 15 times faster compared to a distributed baseline solution.
