Target infrastructures range from single large-scale cloud datacenters to mobile edge clouds and includes individual servers, clusters, or disaggregated systems, such as rackscale systems. The research spans from basic research to applied research, and even innovation via spin-off companies. Collaborations are performed with industries like Google, IBM, Intel, Red Hat, and Ericsson, as well as universities and institutes such as Princeton University, University of Massachusetts Amherst, Lawrence Berkeley Lab, Nanyang Technical University in Singapore, Uppsala University, Lund University, Universidad Complutense de Madrid, Leeds University, Barcelona Supercomputer Center, TU Vienna, TU Delft, and many more.
