Description: This post is funded from the European Commission under grant number FP7-610711 and is available immediately for 36 months to carry out research into the collection and analysis of real-time and historical use data on datacenters and derivation of intelligent datacenter management strategies by integrating solutions from the areas of Cloud and Datacentre Management field, as well as from Mathematics and Operations Research. The post is funded by the Seventh Framework Programme (FP7) project “CACTOS: Context-Aware Cloud Topology Optimisation and Simulation”. The successful candidate will join a research group responsible for the following tasks:

  • To develop a tool for efficient, scalable and hierarchical analysis of data logs, including workload execution traces, system utilization metric traces, and error logs.
  • To investigate novel algorithms for filtering, mining and clustering trace data, focusing on effective algorithms to achieve correlation and co-analysis of traces from different sources
  • To derive scalable parallel and in-memory implementations of the aforementioned algorithms, able to handle vast data volume and suitable for online use by scheduling and resource management frameworks.
  • To use the workload analysis algorithms for pattern identification and behaviour prediction.
