Mueller Receives Multiple Research Awards
Dr. Frank Mueller, professor of computer science at NC State University, has received two awards recently.
First, Dr. Mueller has been awarded $300,000 by Sandia National Laboratories via US Department of Energy to support his research proposal entitled “Hobbes: OS and Runtime Support for Application Composition.”
We will develop the necessary OS/R interfaces and lowlevel system services to support isolation and sharing functionality for designing and implementing applications as well as performance and correctness tools.
We propose a lightweight OS/R system with the flexibility to custom build runtimes for any particular purpose. Each component executes in its own "enclave" with a specialized runtime and isolation properties. A global runtime system provides the software required to compose applications out of a collection of enclaves, join them through secure and low-latency communication, and schedule them to avoid contention and maximize resource utilization.
The primary deliverable of this project is a full OS/R stack based on the Kitten operating system and Palacios virtual machine monitor that can be delivered to vendors for further enhancement and optimization
Second, Dr. Mueller also was awarded $153,934 by Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory via US Department of Energy for his project, "Resilience for Global Address Spaces."
The award will run from 9/24/2013 to 8/15/2014.
