Nimbus is cloud computing for science.
Research. Cloud computing is a game changing paradigm that raises challenging questions across many areas. Our team has been advancing the debate on how it should be best adapted to the needs of scientific projects through our research contributions.
Development. Scalable, production-quality code is the best way to shape the cloud computing paradigm to the needs of science. Our team created the pioneering Nimbus toolkit and is now working on adapting cloud computing to the needs of Computer Science systems experimentation via CHI-in-a-Box.
Operations. Science has unique needs that require unique clouds. Building and operating a cloud for computer science systems research requires support for high reconfigurability, advanced networking, and support for scientific rigor via repeatability.
