Renato Figueiredo awarded NSF grant for Peer-to-Peer Overlay Virtual Network for Cloud Computing Research

Providing end-to-end network connectivity among distributed virtual machines in today's Internet environment (where nodes are often constrained by firewalls and network address translators) requires significant investment of time in development, testing and maintenance of code needed solely to provide connectivity. This project addresses these connectivity challenges in cloud computing by developing an open-source scientific software element that allows researchers and users of clouds to seamlessly create virtual networks on demand for distributed virtual machines.

New Redundant Power Busways Installed


The ACIS lab has installed two redundant modular power busways to expand our server room's power capacity by 130 kW. Combined with our existing capacity, this brings ACIS up over 200 kW of usable power.

These busways hang over the racks and have hot-pluggable modules that can be manufactured with nearly any power connection. This provides us with a great deal of flexibility in the type and location of equipment that we can run in our room.
