The department's research in this area is to study the modeling, design, implementation, and experimentation of cloud computing and storage technologies and services. We focus on not only improving the infrastructures, protocols, applications, and services in modern cloud systems, but also allowing end-users to access cloud services with performance and dependability guarantees. Our recent research topics include:

  • Cloud storage
  • Cloud service reliability
  • Web services
  • Data center architectures
  • Quality-of-service modeling and prediction in clouds
