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.
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.
From Baylor University to Red Hat Czech: Broadening horizons in research through a remote internship experience
The project was initiated in 2019 with the goal to provide U.S. students with a unique summer research experience through project collaboration with outstanding partners in the Czech Republic. Even though the year 2020 was impacted by the COVID-19 outbreak, we managed to transform the activities into an online internship.
During the summer semester of 2020, Red Hat’s Beyond platform offered a class on open source development in conjunction with Efi Arazi School of Computer Science at the Interdisciplinary Center (IDC) of Herzliya, Israel’s only private university.
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.
