This year has already brought us several Research Days discussions streaming around the world. They have covered topics as diverse as big data stream processing, analyzing security certification reports for potential device and product vulnerabilities, and using open source tools to program FPGA applications.
A new working group is tackling observability in production.
Researchers have tested several techniques for using software to get the most out of hardware. Find out about three promising projects that indicate the direction of this quickly changing field. It used to be simple to make computer workloads run faster. Wait eighteen months or so for more transistors consuming the same amount of power, […]
Is there a way to gain the performance benefits of a unikernel without severing it from an existing general-purpose code base? Boston University professors, BU PhD students, and Red Hat engineers at the Red Hat Collaboratory at Boston University are getting close to finding the answer. A unikernel is a single bootable image consisting of […]
Operations are attracting increased attention in the open source community, and the open source ethos is evolving to embrace it. The focus of open source was initially on the code. Over time, however, the health of communities creating that code and associated artifacts such as documentation has also become an open source issue. The approach […]
As the universe of open research clouds keeps expanding, so does the visibility they provide. In 2014, Orran Krieger, Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Boston University (BU), and Peter Desnoyers, Associate Professor at the Khoury College of Computer Sciences at Northeastern University, launched an initiative called the Mass Open Cloud (MOC). Since then, […]
This year’s conference showcased the many flavors and functions of edge computing. Now in its fifth year, DevConf.US was back in person at Boston University this past August. Aimed at community and professional contributors to free and open source technologies, DevConf.US included talks and plenty of informal discussions about the usual wide range of topics, […]
