Djob Mvondo, recipient of the 2021 ASF and GDR RSD Thesis Prize

The prize is awarded to Djob Mvondo for his thesis entitled Resilience and sizing in virtualized environments.

The GDR "Networks and Distributed Systems" (RSD) and the Association "ACM SIGOPS France" (ASF) organise each year a thesis prize in networks and distributed systems in order to encourage and promote research in this field and more specifically to reward the best doctoral work on these subjects.

For the year 2021, Djob Mvomdo is the joint winner with Agathe Blaise and Redha Gouicem. The winners are invited to present their work at the next GDR RSD days. 

Djob Mvondo is a postdoctoral researcher at the ICSA laboratory of the University of Edinburgh, Scotland, working with Antonio Barbalace. He recently obtained his Ph.D. in computer science under the supervision of Prof. Noel De Palma (LIP, UGA/CNRS/Inria) and Prof. Alain Tchana (LIP, ENS de Lyon/CNRS/Inria/UCBL). His research interests include virtualization, cloud computing, and operating systems.

The prize is awarded to Djob Mvondo for his thesis entitled Resilience and sizing in virtualized environments.

Abstract: Virtualization is the cornerstone of cloud computing platforms. It relies on a low-level kernel called the hypervisor(e.g. Xen) which allows executing several virtual machines (VM) on a physical machine. Our goal here is to develop several mechanisms to address problems related to this hypervisor architecture and measure the gain in performance in different domains.
