About the Event
Emerging intelligent bump-in-the-wire network adapters, iNICs, are increasingly
deployed for accelerating custom network functions in large-scale data center and
cloud environments such as Microsoft Azure. However, their potential to speed up
network-intensive server applications remains largely unexplored due to the lack
of appropriate programming models and OS abstractions.
Mark Silberstein is an Assistant Professor at the department of Electrical Engineering, Technion - Israel Institute of Technology. Mark is interested in accelerator-rich systems and OS abstractions and services for and on accelerators, with the ultimate goal to break out of the CPU-centric OS models (HotOS17). His works include GPUfs (ASPLOS13), GPUnet (OSDI14) and GPUrdma libraries for native file system, networking and RDMA support for GPU programs and application-managed virtual memory for GPUs (ISCA16) and SGX enclaves (EuroSYS17).
