During the 2010 IBM Centre for Advanced Studies' annual conference, "
CASCON," four DCS students in collaboration with two IBM researchers received the "Innovation Impact of the Year" award. Undergraduate students, Dmitrijs Palcikovs,
Jack Yang, and Johan Harjono, along with Master's student Madalin Mihailescu were part of the winning team. The award is presented to a project that has " produced output ready to go into TIL for harvesting, AND/OR output
that has already been included in the product."
The team won for their project:
High Scale, Low Touch Cloud Management
High Scale Low Touch is a massively scalable implementation of an
Infrastructure as a Service cloud.
Using peer to peer parallel and distributed techniques the system is
extremely fast and reliable. It shows near
linear scalability from a handful of systems to over a hundred and is
expected to scale well into the thousands.
Low human administration is achieved by the management system itself
dynamically reacting to prevent, detect,
and correct failures. This project demonstrates a breakthrough in
management systems design and is expected to
influence a broad set of management products in the future. In concert
with SWG, the CAS Technology Incubation Lab
created, experimented, and delivered this breakthrough technology.
