Cloud Bug Study (CBS)
The "Cloud" era is here. As more and more computing
tasks depend on cloud computing, the availability,
reliability, and efficiency of cloud-scale systems are becoming
more and more important. Unfortunately, major dependability
problems (outages, data loss, etc.) still take place even recently.
To sum up, today's computing forecast is
"cloudy with a chance of failure."
In UCARE lab
systems research on
we are improving the dependability of storage and cloud-scale distributed
systems in the context of (1) performance stability, specifically on the
handling and management of "limpware", (2) reliability, specifically on combating
distributed concurrency bugs, and (3) scalability, specifically about
finding and reproducing latent scalability bugs easily.
