- NaaS: Network-as-a-Service in the Cloud
NaaS integrates current cloud computing offerings with direct yet secure access to the network infrastructure by tenants. With NaaS, tenants can easily develop and execute application-specific network services, such as custom routing, in-network data aggregation, redundancy elimination and smart caching, in order to improve communication performance.

- Flare: Real-Time Analytics of Massive Data Streams
Questioning, debugging and reasoning a big cluster through massive logs is critical for spawning data-driven decisions. We are exploring how to build a scalable analytics system for collecting, computing and delivering log summaries to numerous data stakeholders at an interactive speed. This is a research project collaborating with Microsoft CISL.
