Prof. Amnon Barak
  The Distributed Systems research group

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

  Research interests and current activities:

  • Algorithms for adaptive resource management in clusters.
  • Resilient algorithms for parallel computing.
  • Virtualization and run-time optimizations in clusters with multiple GPUs:
      the VirtualCL (VCL) and the Memory Access Patterns (MAPS) frame workprojects.
  • Management of clusters and multi-cluster clouds for providing a single-system image:
      the MOSIX project.
  • Parallel and distributed computing systems, algorithms and applications.
