Faster and Cheaper Serverless Computing on Harvested Resources
This week’s paper review, Faster and Cheaper Serverless Computing on Harvested Resources, evaluates running serverless workloads on dynamically resizing virtual machines, called Harvest VMs.
Harvest VMs are able to shrink and expand to use unclaimed resources on data center machines. As a result, they are cheaper than even the “spot” resources available from many cloud providers. While Harvest VMs have great potential, using them poses its own challenges! The paper focuses on whether it is possible to overcome these challenges when running serverless workloads on Harvest VMs.
As always feel free to reach out with feedback on Twitter or by responding to this email!
Until next time,
Micah
