Cloud-Native Systems

Remzi’s research group proposed to an investigation of Cloud-Native Systems (CNS’s) as a new paradigm for systems design and implementation in the era of the cloud. Instead of assuming raw hardware (CPUs, memory, disks, and networks) as a basic building block for systems and services, CNS’s instead assume the presence of the cloud and study how systems should change in this new era. They specifically focus on two CNS examples: a cloud-native local file system and cloud-native persistent key-value store.
