BOSS: Building Operating System Services
TLDR
We develop a set of operating system services called BOSS, which supports multiple portable, fault-tolerant applications on top of the distributed physical resources present in large commercial buildings. Expand
Parity Lost and Parity Regained
TLDR
We use model checking to evaluate whether common protection techniques used in parity-based RAID systems are sufficient in light of the increasingly complex failure modes of modern disk drives. Expand
NapSAC: design and implementation of a power-proportional web cluster
TLDR
We present a design for an power-proportional cluster consisting of a power-aware cluster manager and a set of heterogeneous machines. Expand
Clustera: an integrated computation and data management system
TLDR
This paper introduces Clustera, an integrated computation and data management system. Expand
Integrating Renewable Energy Using Data Analytics Systems: Challenges and Opportunities
TLDR
The variable and intermittent nature of many renewable energy sources makes integrating them into the electric grid challenging and limits their penetration. Expand
Identifying models of HVAC systems using semiparametric regression
TLDR
We use the use of semiparametric regression to identify models, which are amenable to analysis and control system design, of HVAC systems. Expand
Building application stack (BAS)
TLDR
We present BAS, an application programming interface and runtime that enables writing portable code by providing methods to explicitly handle differences in building designs. Expand
An information-centric energy infrastructure: The Berkeley view
TLDR
We describe an approach for how to design an essentially more scalable, flexible and resilient electric power infrastructure that encourages efficient use, integrates local generation, and manages demand through omnipresent awareness of energy availability and use over time. Expand
A parallel IEEE P754 decimal floating-point multiplier
TLDR
This paper presents a fully parallel decimal floating-point multiplier compliant with the recent draft of the IEEE P754 Standard for Floating-point Arithmetic (IEEE P754). Expand
Enabling advanced environmental conditioning with a building application stack
TLDR
We show that a building application stack - that addresses shortcomings of existing antiquated architectures by democratizing sensor data, constructing a framework for reliable and fault-tolerant operation of concurrent applications, and establishing an application programming interface to promote portability throughout the building stock - enables development of advanced applications.
