elcome to the Network-Based Computing (NBC) Laboratory at the Computer Science and Engineering Department!!
The objectives of the research group are as follows:
- Proposing new designs for high performance network-based computing systems by taking advantages of modern networking technologies and computing systems
- Developing better middleware, API, and programming environments so that modern network-based computing applications can be developed and implemented in a scalable and high performance manner
- Performing the above research in an integrated manner (by taking systems, networking, and applications into account)
- Focusing on experimental computer science research
Many state-of-the-art and exciting research projects (including MPI, PGAS (UPC and OpenSHMEM), Hybrid MPI+PGAS, Accelerators (GPGPUs and Intel MIC), Virtualization, Power-aware Designs, Cloud Computing and BigData (Memcached, Hadoop (HDFS, MapReduce and HBase)) and I/O File Systems (using SSDs) are being carried out in the group. One of the internationally recognized project in the group is to investigate the potential of InfiniBand and other emerging RDMA-enabled networking technologies for designing High Performance and Scalable Communication and I/O Subsystems for Clusters with multi-thousand nodes. More details on this project are available on our MPI Over InfiniBand Project Site.
The lab is currently supported by funding from U.S. National Science Foundation , U.S. DOE Office of Science, Ohio Board of Regents, ODOD , Cisco Systems, IBM, Intel, Linux Networx, Mellanox, NVIDIA, QLogic, and Sun/Oracle; and equipment donations from Advanced Clustering , AMD, Apple, Appro, Chelsio, Dell, Fulcrum Microsystems, Fujitsu , Intel, Mellanox, Microway, NetEffect , QLogic and Sun/Oracle. Other technology partner includes: TotalView Technologies. More details can be found here.
