LSDIS Lab's computing resources support distributed and collaborative computing, Intra- and Internet environments, wired and wireless LAN communications, and heterogeneous media data and multimedia document creation and management. Currently, it has approx. 30 computers including 7 servers (Solaris, Linux and Windows) with networked storage.
Commercial-grade software development environment, especially for C/S and distributed systems as well as multimedia authoring and data management receive as much importance as hardware. These include (in addition to freeware)
Significant prototype software include:
The lab maintains active collaborations with industry; its industry sponsor and affiliates include Boeing and Hewlett Packard Corp. We gratefully acknowledge substantial software donation by
Software donations of the past exceeded $400K.
Additional common/shared research and instruction computing facilities, including some machines for parrallel computing, are also available in the Department of Computer Science.
