  • The main objectives of the collaboration in the area of operating systems and system tools for HPC are: operating systems for HPC (focusing on system-level virtualization), system management tools for HPC platforms, and resilience for HPC systems.

  • Title: DataCloud@Work

  • INRIA principal investigator: Gabriel Antoniu, Kerdata

  • International Partner: Valentin Cristea

    • Institution: University Polytechnical Bucharest (UPB)

    • Laboratory: Team of Prof. Valentin Cristea

  • Duration: 2010 - 2012

  • The goal of the Associated team is to study massive data management in cloud based service infrastructures. In this context, the Myriads team is involved in a study aiming at the integration of the BlogSeer large scale storage system in XtreemOS distributed system in a vision where XtreemOS is used for the management of IaaS clouds.

INRIA International Partners

Nikos Parlavantzas is collaborating with the team of Prof. Héctor Duran-Limon of the University of Guadalajara, Mexico on resource management in virtualised environments. We have produced a joint publication and are preparing an ANR project proposition[23] .

Héctor Fernandez and Cédric Tedeschi collaborate with the team of Dr. Patricia Lago from Vrije University Amsterdam. Héctor spent 3 weeks there, working on the use of the Chemical Programming Model to implement a proof of concept of a method for Global Software Development developed in VUA's team, financed by the S-Cube project.

Christine Morin has visited Professor Vladimir Getov, Westminster University, UK in February 2011. A PhD thesis topic in the area of cloud computing has been jointly proposed. Professor Vladimir Getov visited Myriads team in May 2011.

Visits of International Scientists

Chokchai Leangsuksun, Professor at Louisina Tech University (USA) spent one month and a half in the Myriads team in June and July 2011, as an invited professor, funded by the University of Rennes 1. We investigated potential joint research directions related to resilience in cloud computing [30] .

Participation In International Programs

Christine Morin was involved in the Master school education action line to participate in the definition of the Distributed Systems and Services (DSS) major of the EIT ICT Labs Master in ICT innovation.

Since September 2011, Christine Morin has been an affiliate at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory working in the Advanced Computing for Science (ACS) department of the Computational Research Division (CRD). During her sabbatical visit at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, Christine Morin is in charge of the INRIA@SiliconValley program jointly with the INRIA international affairs department.
