Academic Projects
Georgia Institute of Technology, Atlanta US
• Cloud computing with Eucalyptus CERCS project (Prof Karsten, Prof Ada) (present)
Research on VM live migration support in Eucalyptus
• Large Scale Cloud computing CERCS project ( Prof Karsten, Prof Ada, Prof Matt Wolf ) (2009)
- Research on setting up Large Scale Enterprise Clouds with Multi tier applications like RUBiS
- Aggregate data on the physical topology and architecture of large scale Hadoop cluster
• User level pre-emptive thread library (Prof Umakishore) (2009)
Implemented a pre-emptive user-level thread library with an API similar to Pthreads on Linux (Ubuntu) along
with a pre-emptive round robin thread scheduler. Thread API included mutex synchronisation primitives
• Thread and Process Synchronisation in Distributed Environments (2009)
Implemented Sense Reversal barrier, Dissemination barrier and Tree barrier using Open MP and Open MPI, and
synchronized between multiple threads and processes across machines
• Recoverable virtual memory system (2010)
Implemented a recoverable virtual memory system library to create a crash tolerant memory similar to RioVista
and Coda File system. This offers a guarantee for transactional level atomicity
• Virtualization Techniques for Seamless Mobility(2009)
Implemented dynamic adaptation of virtual frame buffer content in Xen environment during seamless migration
across machines with heterogeneous video output parameters
• Real Time Video surveillance system with Motion detection (Prof Calton Pu) (2009)
Motion detection streaming of an captured using an IP camera and over the internetwork. Real time
performance achieved irrespective of the resolution of the stream
Streaming of MPEG video frames using an IP camera over the internetwork and performing motion detection.
College of Engineering Trivandrum, Kerala, India (Spring 2006)
• Main Project – Kernel Design and Implementation of kernel Newbie OS. A monolithic kernel for x86 architecture.
It comprised of implementation of memory management and interrupt handling
