The Weatherspoon Group
Cloud computing promises to catalyze the technology economy, revolutionize health care, military, government, financial systems, scientific research, and society. Yet, many of these uses demand properties that today's cloud platforms either struggle to provide efficiently or lack altogether: reliable high-bandwidth between and widthin data centers, robustness and availability despite failure or attack, security of data and integrity of computation, cloud interoperability, and energy efficiency. Our group focuses these areas to brings us a step closer to the computer utility vision.
