Research Interest
  • Distributed and Internet Computing
  • Cluster/Cloud/Fog/Edge Architectures
  • Distributed Operating Systems
  • Distributed File Systems
  • Virtualizations in Distributed Architectures

My research interests are distributed and Internet computing. More precisely I investigate the interest of recent programming models (such as event or component programming) in the design of new systems in charge of operating large-scale geo-distributed infrastructures. I'm currently working on two particular challenges leveraging locality as a key point of the design:

  • Regarding Data-sharing, I investigate new layers aiming to (i) reduce the impact of the network at WAN level and (ii) to provide elasticity capabilities to storage systems.
  • Regarding the management of virtualized infrastructures, we are particularly interested by scalability challenges, targeting the management of hundred thousands of VMs/containers upon thousands of PMs (see Beyond the Clouds).

My publications since Oct 2008 are listed here!

Short bio: xtreemos.jpg
I received my Ph.D. from Grenoble Institute of Technologies in September 2006 and my M.S. degree from the University of Grenoble in 2003. During my PhD, I suggested a new way to handle I/O requests in multi-application clusters. This proposal led to the aIOLi project, an I/O scheduler framework for HPC file systems. In the meantime, I worked on the NFSp project, a non intrusive implementation of a parallel NFS server. Until these websites will be shutdown, you should find further details (Ph D. thesis, publications, code, documentations) on the aIOLi's and NFSp's sites.
Between 2006 and 2008, I held a postdoc position at INRIA in the framework of the XtreemOS project EU IP project. During this position, I had been in charge of designing and developing kDFS (a kernel Distributed File System). I joined the ASCOLA Research Group on September 2008 where I worked on distributed cloud computing challenges. These activities led in part to the creation of the STACK Research Group that has been officially created in November 2017.
