Abstract: This paper presents the design and implementation of HASEX, which supports a dynamic resource provisioning during application run-time and provides effective quality-ofservice (QoS) resource management system for QoS- and deadline-driven applications. The most important feature of HASEX is the ability to serve high performance and distributed applications with minimal infrastructure and operating costs. The resource provisioning management is controlled by a 'rental' mechanism which is supported by a pool of computing resources that the system may rent from external resource owners/providers in times of high demand. HASEX differentiates the roles of application management, job scheduling, and resource provisioning tasks. This approach significantly reduces the overhead of managing distributed resources. We demonstrate the effectiveness of HASEX to rent groups of resource nodes across geographically disparate sites. We then perform performance comparison of HASEX with OpenNebula cloud system to demonstrate its performance, scalability, and QoS-effectiveness.

Keywords: deadline-driven jobs; SLA management; autonomic and self-management; SLA/QoS middleware; resource provisioning.
