All-IP Computing starts from a very simple premise: the
Internet Protocol (IP) is the only communications mechanism you need.
From this idea flows research in three areas:
- Component Interconnects
iSCSI has already proven to be
a commercial success, replacing the physical connection to a disk or
tape with SCSI commands sent over a network. We work on advanced
storage device protocols, USB/IP, IP-based display protocols, and
boldly propose that IP can even be used in place of a memory bus.
- Planetary-Scale Dynamic Systems
Also called "cloud computing" or "utility computing", we are working
toward on-demand allocation of computational and storage resources
from around the globe.
- Human-Centric Computing
The most profound consequence
of the All-IP philosophy is that human beings should be more
evident in the computational model, supporting anytime, anywhere,
virtually unlimited computing and access to all of one's
