A scalable routing mechanism for stateful microservices

Scalability is an important requirement in the development and the operation of applications in a cloud environment. To handling heavy concurrency in the input load, many design-related and operational factors should be considered. The microservice architecture patterns provide better means to increase the scalability than traditional software architecture patterns. However, certain aspects of applications such as the need to persist/maintain the application state require additional measures in the design and the supporting mechanism. We propose a scalable routing mechanism for applications designed according to the microservice architecture. In particular, a cloud infrastructure resource reservation application has been designed with some stateful services. The proposed approach maintains a good scalability, which provides a mean to achieve the efficient usage of the infrastructure resources.

A Cloud Native Approach to 5G Network Slicing

5G networks will have to support a set of very diverse and often extreme requirements. Network slicing offers an effective way to unlock the full potential of 5G networks and meet those requirements on a shared network infrastructure. This paper presents a cloud native approach to network slicing. The cloud ...

Based on the physical model of a bulk reflective semiconductor optical amplifier (RSOA) used as a modulator in radio over fiber (RoF) links, the distributions of carrier density, signal photon density, and amplified spontaneous emission photon density are demonstrated. One of limits in the use of RSOA is the lower ...

How to preserve users' privacy while supporting high-utility analytics for low-latency stream processing? To answer this question: we describe the design, implementation and evaluation of PRIVAPPROX, a data analytics system for privacy-preserving stream processing. PRIVAPPROX provides three properties: (i) Privacy: zero-knowledge privacy (ezk) guarantees for users, a privacy bound tighter ...
