Prof. Amnon Barak
  The High-Performance Systems research group

The group performs groundbreaking research and development of management
and run-time optimizations in high-performance computers.

Research interests:

  • Randomized and deterministic algorithms for resilient computing in Exascale systems.
  • Parallel and distributed systems, algorithms and applications.
  • Algorithms for adaptive resource management in clouds.
  • A cluster management system for providing a single-system image.
      Selected publications              Erdös number: 1

  On-going projects:
  • Parallel algorithms for resilient computing in Exascale systems: the FFMK project.
  • Virtualization and run-time optimizations in clusters with multiple GPUs: the VirtualCL (VCL) project.
  • Management of clusters and multi-cluster clouds: the MOSIX project.
  • Performance and scalability optimizations for parallel MPI jobs.
