Welcome to the Research Laboratory for Virtualized Infrastructure, Systems, and Applications (VISA) at Arizona State University (ASU).
Our team current works on a variety of exciting projects on cloud, HPC, and big data systems as well as operating systems and storage systems in general.
EuroSys’18: “RTVirt: Enabling Time-sensitive Computing on Virtualized Systems through Cross-layer CPU Scheduling”, EDGE’18: “Are Existing Knowledge Transfer Techniques Effective For Deep Learning on Edge Devices?” …
VISA Lab is a place for fun and productivity! We are looking for talented students to join us! We have multiple PhD positions with full scholarships and paid undergraduate positions.
Directed by Prof. Ming Zhao, the Center for Accelerated Real Time Analytics (CARTA) is a NSF funded Industry-University Cooperative Research Center (IUCRC) that addresses the challenges in real time data analytics and machine learning using accelerated and next generation systems. Faculty, spread across four university sites of ASU, Rutgers, UMBC, and U. of Miami participate[…]
The 37th IEEE Symposium on Massive Storage Systems and Technologies (MSST 2024) will be held at Santa Clara University, in the heart of Silicon Valley, from June 3rd to 7th, 2024, and offer a full week dedicated to storage technology. This year’s conference will include a two-day research track of peer-reviewed papers on the design,[…]
