The main focus of my research is on the energy consumption optimization in large-scale distributed system

From 2006, I am working on Entropy then btrCloud, a software solution to manage virtual machine in cluster environment. In this context, I proposed a dynamic consolidation system for virtualized environment using the constraint programming approach. Around this topic, I am also involved in the modeling, scaling and validation of cloud IaaS management system. I am the author or co-author of more than 40 international publications or communications.

A technology transfer has enhanced his research, by the EasyVirt start'up creation in 2011, a young innovative enterprise specialized in the data center management and optimization.

Theory 10 hours, Practice 50 hours - Mines de NantesEach year, 60H

Mines de Nantes

Operating system courses teach students much more when they provide hands-on kernel-level project experience with a real operating system. To address this challenge, we created a complete kernel development environment in which operating systems can be developed, debugged, and rebooted in the eclipse framework in conjunction to qemu. The system to be developped is named sextant (sextant.menaud.fr)

Theory 10 hours, Practice 10 hours - Mines de NantesEach year, 20H

Mines de Nantes

Development for embedded systems is different from common practices in many ways. Later in the course of operating system, the goal of this module is to provide a global view on the development of embedded systems : Real Time (RT Linux), Ubiquitous system, and Windows CE development.

Theory 5 hours, Practice 15 hoursEach year, 20H

Mines de Nantes, Polytech'Nantes, M2 University

The goal of this module is to provide a global view on techniques and practices of cloud computing with a focus on energy efficiency in large scale distributed systems. Topics include cloud computing principals, X as a service virtualization, and current issues of advanced research in energy efficiency. This course will be supplemented by practical work that will enable students to develop their own algorithm for power management
