The 3rd HotCloudPerf workshop is organized as a meeting venue for academics and practitioners, from experts to trainees, in the field of cloud computing performance. The workshop aims to engage this community, and to lead to the development of new methodological aspects for gaining deeper understanding not only of cloud performance, but also of cloud operation and behavior, through diverse quantitative evaluation tools, including benchmarks, metrics, and workload generators. The workshop focuses on novel cloud properties such as elasticity, performance isolation, dependability, and other non-functional system properties, in addition to classical performance-related metrics such as response time, throughput, scalability, and efficiency.
Theme of the 2020 workshop's edition
“Performance variability of cloud datacenters and the implications of such phenomena on application performance.”
Articles focusing on this topic are particularly encouraged for HotCloudPerf-2020
The HotCloudPerf workshop is technically sponsored by the Standard Performance Evaluation Corporation (SPEC)’s Research Group (RG), and is organized annually by the RG Cloud Group. HotCloudPerf has emerged from the series of yearly meetings organized by the RG Cloud Group, since 2013. The RG Cloud Group group is taking a broad approach, relevant for both academia and industry, to cloud benchmarking, quantitative evaluation, and experimental analysis.
The 2019 workshop's edition: https://hotcloudperf2019.spec.org/
- Serverless computing platforms and micro-services in cloud datacenters.
- Understanding and engineering dependability and non-traditional performance requirements for cloud datacenters.
- Studying performance variability in cloud datacenters and/or solutions for taming performance variability in clouds.
- The implications of performance variability on performance reproducibility.
- Running specialized services with performance guarantees, such as Business Process as a Service, Data as a Service.
- Extending the cloud datacenter to support the non-functional requirements of converged workloads, including IoT, HPC, and big data.
- Experience reports and use-cases with understanding and engineering performance in the cloud datacenter.
- Performance variability and/or guarantees in serverless/FaaS environments.
