Robert Ross mainly focuses on Operating system, File system, Parallel computing, Supercomputer and Scalability. His Virtual file system and Parallel I/O study in the realm of Operating system interacts with subjects such as Suite and Scale. His research in Virtual file system intersects with topics in Computer cluster and Message passing.

He interconnects File server, Data access and Interface in the investigation of issues within Parallel computing. His work in Supercomputer addresses subjects such as Input/output, which are connected to disciplines such as Distributed computing, Petascale computing, Scheduling and I/O scheduling. His Scalability research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Network topology, File system design and Computer data storage.

His most cited work include:

  • PVFS: a parallel file system for linux clusters (881 citations)
  • Parallel netCDF: A High-Performance Scientific I/O Interface (324 citations)
  • On the role of burst buffers in leadership-class storage systems (266 citations)

What are the main themes of his work throughout his whole career to date?

His main research concerns Distributed computing, Parallel computing, File system, Operating system and Supercomputer. Robert Ross combines subjects such as Network topology, Input/output, Scheduling, Computer data storage and Component with his study of Distributed computing. His Parallel computing research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Visualization and Data visualization.

In his study, which falls under the umbrella issue of File system, Virtual machine is strongly linked to Message passing. His work carried out in the field of Supercomputer brings together such families of science as IBM, Quality of service and Scalability. His work investigates the relationship between Scalability and topics such as Metadata that intersect with problems in Database and Data mining.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Distributed computing (35.68%)
  • Parallel computing (25.31%)
  • File system (22.82%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2016-2021)?

  • Distributed computing (35.68%)
  • Supercomputer (19.09%)
  • Network topology (7.05%)

In recent papers he was focusing on the following fields of study:

Robert Ross mostly deals with Distributed computing, Supercomputer, Network topology, Scalability and Workflow. His Distributed computing research integrates issues from Routing, Cloud computing, Computer data storage and Component. His research integrates issues of Workload, Quality of service, Set and Big data in his study of Supercomputer.

He focuses mostly in the field of Network topology, narrowing it down to topics relating to Network model and, in certain cases, Design space exploration. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Node, Software and Metadata. He has researched Software in several fields, including File system, Lustre, Concurrency, Job scheduler and Parallel I/O.

Between 2016 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Enabling Parallel Simulation of Large-Scale HPC Network Systems (56 citations)
  • Fail-Slow at Scale: Evidence of Hardware Performance Faults in Large Production Systems (46 citations)
  • Extreme Heterogeneity 2018 - Productive Computational Science in the Era of Extreme Heterogeneity: Report for DOE ASCR Workshop on Extreme Heterogeneity (25 citations)

In his most recent research, the most cited papers focused on:

  • Operating system
  • Programming language
  • Computer network

Distributed computing, Supercomputer, Network topology, Network model and Scalability are his primary areas of study. His research in the fields of Network simulation overlaps with other disciplines such as Trace-based simulation. His work in Supercomputer tackles topics such as Job scheduler which are related to areas like Lustre, Parallel I/O, Distributed File System and File system.

Robert Ross has included themes like Remote procedure call, Instruction set, Metadata and Server in his Scalability study. His Computer network research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Workload and Input/output. His studies in Input/output integrate themes in fields like Computer data storage, Machine learning and Artificial intelligence.
