TaScaaS: A Multi-Tenant Serverless Task Scheduler and Load Balancer as a Service

Journal paper
03 September 2021
This work introduces TaScaaS, a highly scalable and completely serverless service deployed on AWS to distribute loosely coupled jobs among several computing infrastructures, and load balance them using a completely asynchronous approach to cope with the performance fluctuations with minimum impact in the execution time.

Network Function Decomposition and Offloading on Heterogeneous Networks With Programmable Data Planes

Journal paper
02 August 2021
This work presents a framework for the automatic deployment of disaggregated and decomposed network functions. The framework comprises an orchestrator capable of deploying the decomposed network functions on programmable network hardware and software switches running in containers.

PERUN: Confidential Multi-stakeholder Machine Learning Framework with Hardware Acceleration Support

Journal paper
14 July 2021
PERUN is a framework for confidential multi-stakeholder machine learning that allows users to make a trade-off between security and performance. PERUN executes ML training on hardware accelerators (e.g., GPU) while providing security guarantees using trusted computing technologies, such as trusted platform module and integrity measurement architecture.
