"Futuristic UC Berkeley operating system uniquely controls discrete 'manycore' resources"
A Network World article by Ellen Messmer, "Futuristic UC Berkeley operating system uniquely controles discrete 'manycore' resources," describes the Tesselation operating system by Professor John Kubiatowicz. The article states:
"According to Kubiatowicz, Tessellation -- which is a math term for how shapes can be arranged to fill a plane without any gaps -- is an innovative OS that looks to define resources such as bandwidth for cloud storage, latency to response, and requests for database services in a continuous adaptive manner based on its concept of resource containers."
Professor Kubiatowicz' work is sponsored in part by the TerraSwarm Research Center. One of the intended outcomes of TerraSwarm is SwarmOS, which will provide a swarm of services at the edge of the cloud.
The article also mentions Professor Edward A. Lee's presentation on the Internet of Things and Professor Alberto Sangiovann-Vincentelli's closing keynote. Both presentations mentioned the TerraSwarm Research Center.
