Towards high performance and energy efficiency in open-source stream processing.

BU faculty members Vasiliki Kalavari and Jonathan Appavoo will work with Red Hat researcher Sanjay Arora to create an open-source Mass Open Cloud (MOC)-hosted stream processing system using Apache Flink software. The researchers will leverage the open nature of the software to build a platform that optimizes trade-offs between energy efficiency and performance while maintaining transparency and the easy sharing of knowledge.  “This project aims to demonstrate that energy efficiency and the myriad layers of software that go into an open source streaming platform need not be incompatible,” the team wrote.
