Paper accepted at IFIP/IEEE IM’17

The paper “Energy-Efficient Resource Allocation and Provisioning for InMemory Database Clusters” coauthored by K. Molka and G. Casale has been accepted for IFIP/IEEE IM 2017!

The paper looks at consolidaton of SAP HANA clusters and defines a mixed-integer nonlinear optimization problem for dealing with resource allocation and server assignment. The solution approach combines genetic algorithms and a modified best-fit-decreasing heuristic for finding a near-optimal solution.
