MOLAR: Modular Linux and Adaptive Runtime Support for HEC OS/R research

MOLAR is a multi-institution research effort that concentrates on adaptive, reliable,and efficient operating and runtime system solutions for ultra-scale high-end scientific computing on the next generation of supercomputers. This research addresses the challenges outlined by the FAST-OS - forum to address scalable technology for runtime and operating systems - and HECRTF - high-end computing revitalization task force - activities by providing a modular Linux and adaptable runtime support for high-end computing operating and runtime systems.

The MOLAR research has the following goals to address these issues.

The overall goal of the research conducted at NCSU will be to develop scalable algorithms for high-availability without single points of failure and without single points of control.
