In the Media: Interview with Rodrigo Rodrigues – “90 Segundos de Ciência”

The CMU Portugal National Co-Director was interviewed by 90 Segundos de Ciência about his project to improve the efficiency of cloud computing servers. Rodrigo Rodrigues,  Professor at Instituto Superior Técnico and a researcher at InescID, has already been awarded a European Research Council (ERC) Grant to study the development of more efficient and effective protocols for the replication of information in cloud computing.

Cloud computing has some characteristics that make it distinct from traditional computing methods. One of these features is that it requires information to be multiplied by a network of servers spread around the world. This redundancy of information is necessary on the one hand, so that data won’t be lost if the server is destroyed by a natural disaster, and on the other hand so that this information is closer to the end user, thus providing a more interactive service, and responsive to these users.
