Title: Data-Informed Cloud System Analytics: Where Data Science Meets System Management

Time: Tuesday 3:00PM - 4:00PM, March 4th, 2016

Location: 0046 Deroy Auditorium

In this talk, I will introduce two examples of our data-informed cloud system analytics projects in IBM Research - Almaden. The first is a lightweight, non-instrusive, and data-driven blackbox storage performance modeling framework for efficient cloud storage management. The second is a big data analytics platform in production which catches outliers from millions of enterprise backup jobs each day. I will also discuss several major research efforts ongoing in IBM Research - Almaden.
