XtreemOS is a Linux-based operating systems that includes Grid functionalities. It is characterised by properties such as transparency, hiding the complexity of in the underlying distributed infrastructure; scalability, supporting hundreds of thousands of nodes and millions of users; and dependability, providing reliability, highly availability and security.
The XtreemOS Summer School will include lectures on modern distributed paradigms such as Grid computing, Cloud computing, and network-centric operating systems. The Summer School will combine lectures from research leaders shaping the future of distributed systems and world leaders in deploying and exploiting distributed infrastructures. Hands-on laboratory exercises and practical sessions using XtreemOS will give participants experience on using modern distributed systems.

The aims of the XtreemOS Summer School are:

  • To introduce participants to emergent computing paradigms such as Grid computing and Cloud computing
  • To provide lectures and practical courses on novel techniques to achieve scalability, highly availability and security in distributed systems
  • To present Grid applications in the domains of E-science and business.
  • To provide a forum for participants to discuss your research work and share experience with experience researchers.
