Statistical Analysis and Modeling of Heterogeneous Workloads on Amazon's Public Cloud Infrastructure

AbstractWorkload modeling in public cloud environments is challenging due to reasons such as infrastructure abstraction, workload heterogeneity and a lack of defined metrics for performance modeling. This paper presents an approach that applies statistical methods for distribution analysis, parameter estimation and Goodness-of-Fit (GoF) tests to develop theoretical (estimated) models of heterogeneous workloads on Amazon's public cloud infrastructure using compute, memory and IO resource utilization data.
