Computer Systems and Networking

Improving networked-computing efficiencies

Computers now operate in a connected, often mobile world. Our research into operating systems, networks, and distributed computing is focused on developing technologies that enable computers to operate more effectively in a networked environment, and that provide the infrastructure required to enable the deployment, operation, management, and security of distributed applications.
