Research and Innovation in Cloud Computing

The DSA (Distributed Systems Architecture) Research Group at Complutense University of Madrid conducts research in advanced distributed computing and virtualization technologies for large-scale infrastructures and resource provisioning platforms.

Ongoing research lines address the challenges of Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) Cloud Computing:

  • Cloud architectures
  • Edge Computing
  • Software Defined Networking (SDN) & Network Function Virtualization (NFV)
  • Cloud federation and interoperability
  • High Performance Computing (HPC) clouds

The group founded the OpenNebula Open-source Project, widely used technology to build IaaS cloud infrastructures; is a co-founder of the OGF Working Group on Cloud Computing Interface; and participates in the main European projects in cloud computing, such as RESERVOIR, flagship of European research initiatives in virtualized infrastructures and cloud computing, BonFIRE, 4CaaSt, StratusLab, PANACEA and CloudCatalyst. The results of the research have been published in several leading publications on virtualization and cloud computing, and members of the group participate in the Program Committee of the most important workshops and conference in the research field. The group founded the Spanish Initiative in Grid Middleware and the Working Group on SOI and Grids of INES - Spanish Technology Platform on Software and Services; and is involved in NESSI.

The Strategy section describes the complete research profile of the group since its foundation in 2002.
