Cloud computing is emerging in industry because of its flexible resource management. Many private companies have started their new businesses that are reselling their unused computing powers. Such a trend is gradually impacting the traditional computing facilities used in scientific domains. In the high energy physics domain, many computing resources are required in general. Therefore it is always required to seek sharing resources and find outside available resources. The one of most challenges is how to stably share a queue among heterogeneous experiments. Sharing a queue is at risk of losing services because malicious work can deeply impact the entire system. In cloud computing, such a problem can be resolved with the feature of virtual machine isolation. We can utilize such a feature to support multiple experiments in a single computing farm. In this paper, we introduce mvcluster which is a multi-queue enabled virtual cluster system, which extends the functionalities of the single queue-based mvcluster. Our proposed approach can achieve service stability and flexible computing capacity increasing resource utilization.
Keywords: Mvcluster, Multiple Experiments Support, Virtual Cluster System
