The research of this working group focuses on the aspects of scalability, reliability and efficiency in massively parallel multicore systems as well as very large, Internet-distributed systems.

In our work, we try to transfer the resilience of Internet-distributed algorithms, such as structured peer-to-peer protocols, to massively parallel applications. Our research topics include: transactional key/value stores (Scalaris) and massively-parallel search-algorithms with MapReduce (MR-Search).
