Multicast traffic patterns play a key role in dependable data centers, arising when data is replicated and distributed over multiple machines for fault-tolerance and availability. Such settings involve large numbers of multicast groups as well as multiple senders to each group — a single system can have hundreds of such multicast channels. Without effective(More)
Large-scale datacenters that handle continuous data streams require scalable and flexible communication infrastructure. The scalability of publish/subscribe (pub/sub) middleware coupled with fine-grained quality-of-service (QoS) support and adaptive transport protocols constitutes a promising area of research to address the challenges of these types of(More)
Patent ductus arteriosus in the adult is an extremely rare clinical phenomenon. We report the case of a 34-year old man who developed pulmonary endarteritis and subsequent embolic lung abscess secondary to a large patent ductus arteriosus. This brief report also provides an overview of the natural history, potential complications, optimal therapy, and(More)

Existing storage stacks are top-heavy and expect little from block storage. As a result, new high-level storage abstractions – and new designs for existing abstractions – are difficult to realize, requiring developers to implement from scratch complex functionality such as failure atomicity and fine-grained concurrency control. In this paper, we argue that(More)

iii Vita Irina Calciu was born and raised in Bucharest, Romania. She became interested in Computer Science at an early age and participated in various programming competitions during high-school. In 2006 she moved to Bremen, Germany, to pursue a B.Sc. research focuses on designing algorithms that leverage new architectural features of modern hardware to(More)
BACKGROUND There is no gold standard technique for umbilical hernia (UH) repair. Conventional open UH repair often produces an undesirable scar. Laparoscopic UH repair requires multiple incisions beyond the umbilicus, specialized equipments, and expensive tissue separating mesh. We describe our technique of open UH repair utilizing a small incision. The(More)

Data centers form the underpinnings of the global technology revolution that is cloud computing. There is enormous pressure for data center growth and expansion, to meet the computational demands of an increasingly digital world. With energy costs overtaking server costs in data centers, energy is fast becoming a significant bottleneck to data center(More)
