Although cloud computing became a mainstream industrial computing paradigm, low resource utilization remains a common problem that most warehouse-scale datacenters suffer from. This leads to a significant waste of hardware resources, infrastructure investment, and energy consumption. As the diversity in application workloads grows into an essential characteristic in modern datacenters, task co-location of different workloads to the same compute cluster has gained immense popularity as a heuristic solution for resource utilization optimization. Although the existing co-location methodologies manage to improve resource efficiency to a certain degree, application QoS is usually sacrificed as a ..
