Our engineers partner with researchers and students at universities worldwide to collaborate on research projects from AI to privacy to heterogenous hardware.
A Greater Boston RIG project
As modern data center workloads become increasingly complex, constrained and critical, mainstream “CPU-centric” computing can no longer keep pace. Future data centers are moving towards a more fluid model, with computation and communication no longer localized to commodity CPUs and routers. Next generation “data-centric” data centers will “compute everywhere,” whether data is stationary (in memory) or on the move (in network). Reconfigurable hardware, in the form of Field Programmable Gate Arrays (FPGAs), are transforming ordinary clouds into massive supercomputers. This project highlights many ways to deploy FPGAs in a data center node, such as traditional back-end accelerators, tightly coupled off-load processors, Smart NICs, Bump-in-the-Wire, and even in the router itself.
As part of our OpenInfraLabs collaboration with Red Hat’s CTO team on the Mass Open Cloud initiative (MOC), we get to do new innovative things for the first time.
Boston University (BU) has long been a big part of the Red Hat Research program and Red Hat’s academic collaboration generally. On April 27, the two organizations took that collaboration up a level.
Red Hat took part in a virtual panel hosted by MIT for students interested in doing research for high tech companies
MIT hosted a virtual panel for graduate students interested in doing research for high tech companies on January 27, 2021 as part of the Institute’s Independent Activities Period. The “PhD Careers in Tech” event, which covered many different fields of graduate study in both sciences and engineering, as well as general entrepreneurship, included panelists from diverse industries who shared key insights, spoke about skills required for success, how to navigate the interview process and how to build career paths in industry.
Red Hat offers students a unique opportunity to gain real-life working experience working on Red Hat projects and products. Every Red Hat intern works on a project with a goal of getting code into open source, building experience and upstream credibility along the way.
At Red Hat, our engineers are full of good open source ideas, but there’s only so much time to work on them. You can help! Whether you’re an experienced coder or just starting out in open source, we’ve got a project that’s right for you.
Red Hat Research Quarterly
Ever wonder what it’s like to report a security flaw to a major chipmaker? Find out in our interview with Kit Murdock in the latest Red Hat Research Quarterly. Every quarter, we detail the latest projects we’re working on, and interview a leader in open source code and cutting edge research.
