Best Demo award at ACM/IEEE SEC 2019

Thomas Rausch and co-authors receive Best Demo award for their work on Systems for Operating Energy-Aware Cloudlets

We presented a Demo titled “A System for Operating Energy-Aware Cloudlets” at The Fourth ACM/IEEE Symposium on Edge Computing 2019 in Washington DC.

Authors: Thomas Rausch, Philipp Raith, Padmanabhan Pillai (Intel Labs), Schahram Dustdar


We present an end-to-end system for operating energy-aware cloudlets with a low-footprint cluster manager and an adaptive client-side load balancing approach. Our system is designed for small-scale high-density compute clusters that host stateless services and have stringent energy resource constraints. It features cluster and service management, runtime monitoring, adaptive load balancing and cluster reconfiguration policies. Furthermore, we present an experimentation and analytics system that allows coordinated execution of complex workload experiments to evaluate different operational strategies.
