About the Event
Data centers are the digital-era analogue of factories and have become a vital infrastructure of
online service providers and enterprises. The golden rule of designing and operating a data center
is maximizing the amount of useful work per dollar spent. To meet this goal, the most desirable
technical feature is agility—the ability to assign any computing resources to any tenants any time.
Anything less inevitably results in stranded resources and poor performance perceived by data-
Changhoon Kim works at Windows Azure, Microsoft's cloud-service division, and leads research and engineering projects on the architecture, performance, management, and operation of datacenter and enterprise networks. His research themes span network virtualization, Big-data processing platform, programmable networks, self-configuring networks, and debugging and diagnosis of large-scale distributed systems. Changhoon received Ph.D. from Princeton University in 2009, where he worked with Prof. Jennifer Rexford. Many of his research outcomes (including SEATTLE, VL2, VNet, Seawall, EyeQ, and the relay-routing technology for VPNs) are either directly adopted by production service providers or under review by standard bodies, such as IETF. In particular, his VL2 work was published in the Research Highlights section of the Communications of the ACM (CACM) as an invited paper, which the editors recognize as "one of the most important research results published in CS in recent years". He is the recipient of Rockstar Award 2013, an annual recognition for the strongest individual networking contributions Microsoft-wide.
