Prof. Amnon Barak
  The High-Performance Computing Systems research group

The group performs groundbreaking research and development in management
and run-time optimizations of high-end computing systems.

Areas of current activities include:

  • Algorithms for adaptive resource management in clouds.
  • Randomized and deterministic algorithms for resilient computing in Exascale clusters.
  • Run-time optimizations for accelerators (e.g. GPUs) in clusters using memory access patterns.
  • A cluster management system for providing a single-system image.
  • Parallel and distributed systems, algorithms and applications.
      On-going and previous projects

  Research interests:
  • Parallel algorithms for resilient computing in Exascale clusters: the FFMK project.
  • Management of clusters and multi-cluster clouds: the MOSIX project.
  • Virtualization and run-time optimizations in clusters with multiple GPUs:
      the VirtualCL (VCL) and the MAPS Framework projects.
  • High performance parallel and distributed computing.
