Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Operating system
  • Programming language
  • Computer network

Willy Zwaenepoel spends much of his time researching Operating system, Distributed computing, Distributed shared memory, Scalability and Server. Many of his studies involve connections with topics such as Embedded system and Operating system. His study on Fault tolerance is often connected to Logging as part of broader study in Distributed computing.

His Distributed shared memory study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Cache coherence, Distributed memory, Shared memory and TreadMarks. His TreadMarks study combines topics in areas such as Release consistency, False sharing and Parallel computing. Willy Zwaenepoel combines subjects such as Auxiliary memory, Cluster based and Request distribution with his study of Scalability.

His most cited work include:

  • TreadMarks: shared memory computing on networks of workstations (791 citations)
  • Implementation and performance of Munin (631 citations)
  • TreadMarks: distributed shared memory on standard workstations and operating systems (603 citations)

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

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Distributed computing, Operating system, Parallel computing, Shared memory and Distributed shared memory. His Distributed computing research incorporates elements of Scheduling, Computer network, Latency and Scalability. In his study, Virtual machine and Virtualization is inextricably linked to Embedded system, which falls within the broad field of Operating system.

Willy Zwaenepoel has included themes like Process, Workstation and Compiler in his Parallel computing study. His studies in Shared memory integrate themes in fields like Release consistency and Optimizing compiler. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Cache coherence, Distributed memory and False sharing.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Distributed computing (37.13%)
  • Operating system (28.27%)
  • Parallel computing (19.41%)

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

  • Latency (9.28%)
  • Causal consistency (6.75%)
  • Distributed computing (37.13%)

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

His primary areas of study are Latency, Causal consistency, Distributed computing, Computer network and Theoretical computer science. His Causal consistency research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Scalability, Data center and Server. Willy Zwaenepoel interconnects Scheduling, Analytics and Big data in the investigation of issues within Distributed computing.

In his study, which falls under the umbrella issue of Computer network, Load balancing and State is strongly linked to Workload. NVM Express and Operating system are two areas of study in which Willy Zwaenepoel engages in interdisciplinary research. Specifically, his work in Operating system is concerned with the study of Capacity planning.

Between 2016 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • TRIAD: creating synergies between memory, disk and log in log structured key-value stores (42 citations)
  • Everything you always wanted to know about multicore graph processing but were afraid to ask (29 citations)
  • KVell: the design and implementation of a fast persistent key-value store (23 citations)

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

  • Operating system
  • Programming language
  • Computer network

Willy Zwaenepoel mostly deals with Latency, Distributed computing, Computer network, Causal consistency and Merge. His Distributed computing research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Partition, Data center, Task parallelism and Server. His studies deal with areas such as Workload and Software as well as Computer network.

Combining a variety of fields, including Merge, Operating system and Associative array, are what the author presents in his essays. The concepts of his Operating system study are interwoven with issues in Tree structure and Sequential access. His Associative array research includes themes of Commit and Parallel computing.
