The Applied Distributed Systems Lab (ADSLab) is a systems
research group led by Prof. Patrick P. C.
Lee from the Department of
Computer Science and Engineering at the Chinese University of Hong
Kong. We conduct applied research on systems, including file and
storage systems, computer networks, distributed systems, cloud
computing, etc. Our research puts specific emphasis on practical
system design, prototype implementation, and in-depth experiments
under realistic deployment environments. We ensure that our developed
systems achieve the dependability guarantees, with emphasis on fault
tolerance, recovery, security, and performance.
ADSLab aims for the long-term goals:
- Define new system design invariants that provide insights for academia and industry into solving practical problems;
- Complement and validate the practical implications of the fundamental results explored by theoretical research;
- Collaborate with industry and carry out technology/knowledge transfers of our system prototypes; and
- Train students to be solid systems researchers who can contribute to both academia and industry.
