      Description

      This is an umbrella JIRA that proposes a new REEF application Vortex, which aims to ease programming of low-priority job that run on volatile(preemptable) resources.

      The motivation is that today’s datacenters are often under-utilized due to high-priority tenants that need to dynamically adjust resource usage depending on load fluctuations.

      Our approach to this problem is to provide a runtime for low-priority jobs to effectively cope with non-cooperative(thus low-latency) preemptions with the following goals:

      • Allow high-priority jobs to reclaim resources quickly
      • Allow low-priority jobs to efficiently utilize volatile resources
