Build compute fabrics for next-generation IT solutions utilizing a cross-layer, inter-disciplinary approach across conventional divisions – of CPU, system, and data center; compute, storage, networking, and packaging; hardware, firmware, systems, and software; over performance, power, availability, and manageability; with cost-effectiveness and agility.



We expect our research to enable “cloud” end-to-end data center solutions with significant (5-10X) improvements in performance-per-cost compared to the state-of-the-art and a top 500 High Performance Computing demonstrator whose performance significantly (15X-20X) leapfrogs that of previous systems.



  • dramatically improve the manageability, power, and availability of future computing systems
  • develop effective parallel programming techniques and software tools for the many-core era
  • create new capabilities through virtualization and novel integrated hardware/software platforms
  • dramatically improve performance/cost of systems by leveraging future technology (e.g., nanophotonics)
