Gu Receives Award to Study Virtual Computing

 Dr. Xiaohui (Helen) Gu, assistant professor of computer science at NC State University, has been awarded $300,000 by the Army Research Office to support her proposal titled “Predictive Anomaly Management for Resilient Virtualized Computing Infrastructures.”

The award will run from July 1, 2010 through June 30, 2013.
Abstract - Large-scale virtualized computing infrastructures have become important platforms for many real-world systems such as cloud computing, virtual computing lab, and massive information processing. However, due to its inherent complexity and sharing nature, virtualized computing infrastructures are inevitably prone to various system anomaly problems such as software/hardware failures, performance anomalies, and malicious attacks. The goal of this project is to develop a new predictive anomaly management system to enhance the resilience of virtualized computing infrastructure. The major contributions will be an integrated framework consisting of four synergistic techniques: 1) scalable runtime virtual machine monitoring; 2) self-evolving online anomaly prediction; 3) speculative anomaly diagnosis; and 4) online anomaly correction.
