Measurement, Modeling, and Analysis of the Mobile App Ecosystem
Thanasis Petsas, Antonis Papadogiannakis, Michalis Polychronakis, Evangelos P. Markatos, Thomas Karagiannis
Article No.: 7
DOI: 10.1145/2993419

Mobile applications (apps) have been gaining popularity due to the advances in mobile technologies and the large increase in the number of mobile users. Consequently, several app distribution platforms, which provide a new way for developing,...

Cocoa: Dynamic Container-Based Group Buying Strategies for Cloud Computing
Xiaomeng Yi, Fangming Liu, Di Niu, Hai Jin, John C. S. Lui
Article No.: 8
DOI: 10.1145/3022876

Although the Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) cloud offers diverse instance types to users, a significant portion of cloud users, especially those with small and short demands, cannot find an instance type that exactly fits their needs or fully...

Evaluating the Combined Effect of Memory Capacity and Concurrency for Many-Core Chip Design
Yu-Hang Liu, Xian-He Sun
Article No.: 9
DOI: 10.1145/3038915

Modern memory systems are structured under hierarchy and concurrency. The combined impact of hierarchy and concurrency, however, is application dependent and difficult to describe. In this article, we introduce C2-Bound, a...

Advance Reservation Games
Eran Simhon, David Starobinski
Article No.: 10
DOI: 10.1145/3053046

Advance reservation (AR) services form a pillar of several branches of the economy, including transportation, lodging, dining, and, more recently, cloud computing. In this work, we use game theory to analyze a slotted AR system in which customers...

Obtaining and Managing Answer Quality for Online Data-Intensive Services
Jaimie Kelley, Christopher Stewart, Nathaniel Morris, Devesh Tiwari, Yuxiong He, Sameh Elnikety
Article No.: 11
DOI: 10.1145/3055280

Online data-intensive (OLDI) services use anytime algorithms to compute over large amounts of data and respond quickly. Interactive response times are a priority, so OLDI services parallelize query execution across distributed software components...

Efficient Redundancy Techniques for Latency Reduction in Cloud Systems
Gauri Joshi, Emina Soljanin, Gregory Wornell
Article No.: 12
DOI: 10.1145/3055281

In cloud computing systems, assigning a task to multiple servers and waiting for the earliest copy to finish is an effective method to combat the variability in response time of individual servers and reduce latency. But adding redundancy may...
