Ownership: A Distributed Futures System for Fine-Grained Tasks

Systems and Networking Seminar
Speaker Name

The talk will be virtual on Zoom.

The distributed futures interface is an increasingly popular choice for building distributed applications that manipulate large amounts of data. Distributed futures are an extension of RPC that combines futures and distributed memory: a distributed future is a reference whose eventual value may be stored on a remote node. An application can then express distributed computation without having to specify when or where execution should occur and data should be moved.
