Stanford University Distributed Systems Group
The Distributed Systems Group (DSG), led by Prof. David
R. Cheriton, is a research group in the Departments of Computer
Science and Electrical
Engineering at Stanford University.
The DSG has research projects in the following areas:
Professor David Cheriton
- Gregory Chanan
- Randy Jennings
- Borrowed Virtual Time Scheduling
- Performance of packet checksums and CRCs over real data, and analysis
of common packet errors.
- EXPRESS single-source multicast
- Reliable multicast transport protocols and multicast-based web caching.
- Object-oriented RPC
- High-performance Communication: very fast wide-area networks, network
interfaces, multiprocessor gateways, multicast, distributed systems architectures
and protocols, including Dissemination-Oriented Communication
Support. The PARADISE project serves as
an active testbed for much of this research.
- High-performance modular distributed operating systems, with particular
support for efficient distributed parallel execution of large-scale applications.
- Parallel architecture, systems and programming, including hardware
development of a multiprocessor machine, parallel
operating systems and parallel and distributed application structuring.
