I am professor at IMT Atlantique (France) and member of the LS2N/Inria STACK team. My main interests are related to operating system and distributed systems. I serve on several PCs in the Cloud and Energy-aware computing area. From 2022, I am the deputy Director of the Laboratory of Digital Sciences of Nantes (LS2N) UMR CNRS 6004.
My researches focus on energy aware distributed systems, in particular on workload placement, scheduling and renewable energies in datacenters. In this context, I proposed dynamic consolidation systems for virtualized environment using the constraint programming approach.
Around this topic, I am also involved in the security, scaling and validation of cloud IaaS management system (virtualization, container) and recently, IoT and Blockchain. I am the author or co-author of more than 80 international publications.
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. At the end of 2021, the company deployed its DCScope software in more than 300 companies.

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)
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 (VMWare ESXi) that will enable students to develop their own algorithm for power management.
With the emergence of the Future
Internet and the dawning of new IT models such as cloud computing,
the usage of data center and the associated electrical power
consumption increase dramatically. A finely ernegy and power
management becomes one of the main challenges for data
Software solutions from EasyVirt Technologies can help you to control your infrastructure, with robust solutions designed to supervision, provision, control, assure, secure, and optimize your stand-alone virtual, physical or hybrid infrastructure.

The SeDuCe project (Sustainable Data Centers: Bring Sun, Wind and Cloud Back Together), aims to design an experimental infrastructure dedicated to the study of data centers with low energy footprint. More here
The SeDuCe++ project aims to buy IoT/Edge devices (ESP32, Robot, Raspberry Pi)
The HYDDA project aims to develop a software solution allowing the deployment of Big Data applications (with hybrid design (HPC/CLoud)) on heterogeneous platforms (cluster, Grid, private Cloud) and orchestrators (Task scheduler like Slurm, Virtual orchestrator (like Nova for OpenStack or Swarm for Docker). The mains challenges addressed by the project are:
EPOC (Energy Proportional and Opportunistic Computing systems) aims at focusing on energy-aware task execution from the hardware to application's components in the context of a mono-site data center (all resources are in the same physical location) which is connected to the regular electric Grid and to renewable energy sources (such as windmills or solar cells).
