Our paper “Joint Monitorless Load-Balancing and Autoscaling for Zero-Wait-Time in Data Centers” has been accepted in the IEEE Transactions on Network and Service Management (TNSM). It presents a technique to jointlty load-balance requests and auto-scale instances to achieve Zero-Wait-Time in Data Centers without relying on centralized monitoring. An analytical model is derived to prove that our scheme yields asymptotic zero-wait time with high and controllable probability. These results are then confirmed by an extensive simulation campaign that shows near-ideal results in terms of response time and resource costs.
