We are exploring all aspects of support for transactional programming, to include compiler support, run-time mechanisms for transactional I/O, transactional workloads, and language integration.
In this project we explore design and implementation of concurrent data structures optimized to provide high performance on large multicore architectures (> 100 cores), where the memory latency distribution is not uniform, and distributed deployments.
Concurrent Applications include blocks of code ensuring threads mutual exclusion to preserve correct accesses to data. In multicore architectures, the traditional way to implement mutual exclusion leads to resource underutilization. In this project we exploit application semantics to improve performance of atomic parts of code using compiler and library extensions.
Distributed deployments (e.g., Cloud Computing) are the only feasible way to meet elasticity and scalability requirements of large applications and systems. We focus on designing scalable transactional databases that guarantee strong correctness high-level properties, such as non-blocking queries, to retain high performance.
