Abstract:

To maximize multicore architectures Securboration is teaming with multicore expert Dr. Frank Muller from the North Carolina State University to develop the Pico-kernel Adaptive and Scalable Operating-system, or PICASO, which has the potential for transformative advances in science and technology. PICASO puts forth novel techniques in multicore operating system design by 1) enabling predictable execution on multicores; 2) guaranteeing scalability in the number of cores of systems by design; 3) utilizing a core activation policy for scheduling; and 4) developing programming and operating systems abstractions suitable for processors with massive numbers of cores. The expected contributions are both fundamental and applied, including techniques, methodologies, system components and tools.
