Efficient server resource utilization remains a challenge for large-scale cloud operators. Workload co-location and server resource over-commitment are some approaches to increase resource utilization and reduce costs in datacenters. Special care must be taken to not impact application performance.
We review three cluster management systems, namely Borg, Quasar, and History-based Harvesting. These systems rely on resource utilization patterns to perform workload co-location and over-commitment without reducing performance. Finally, we present future research directions to quantify and exploit resource usage predictability in cluster management decisions.
