Heterogeneous Cluster Computing

Traditional enterprise applications currently run on platforms that are complicated and expensive to build or maintain. They often require a team of experts to operate these platforms. New IT solutions that use dynamically scalable and virtualized clusters of shared computing resources have the potential to dramatically cut costs associated with delivery of enterprise IT services. However, many challenges must be overcome. We discuss the major challenges, key technologies that we are working on to overcome the challenges, and the role of benchmarks and metrics in our research program.
