Clouds provide a public service where applications/services run in a virtual environment. The NiceX lab is focused on networked intelligent computing in cloud services, mainly including cloud operating systems, storage, reliable memory, networking, and scheduling. Currently, Prof. Yiming Zhang is the director of NICEX Lab.
