Resource management technology using SDN
We have been promoting research and development on resource management technology that treats processor, storage and network resources comprehensively, by regarding the interconnect of cluster system as dynamically controllable resource.
In particular, this study introduces Software Defined Networking (SDN), a newly-emerged networking concept into Job Management System(JMS). By taking advantage of network programmability brought by SDN, we aim to realize a novel resource management technology that provides the optimal combination of network and computational resources for user’s job request for higher computational throughput.
This reearch has been promoted with NICT researchers and partly supported by the collaborative
research of the National Institute of Information and Communication Technology and Osaka University (Research on high functional network platform technology for large-scale distributed computing).
