The Large-Scale Systems Group (LSSG) studies critical systems research questions underlying robust, scalable large-scale systems, including cloud, high performance, and mobile/IoT computing.   These systems have billions of elements, exabytes of data, and endemic impact on social, consumer, government, and scientific applications of unprecedented scale.  Specific interests include system software and networking, hardware and system architecture, and applications.   LSSG is led by Professor  Andrew A. Chien .
