HASLab researchers publish an article in the scientific journal ACM Computing Surveys

The article A Survey and Classification of Software-Defined Storage Systems, co-written by researchers Ricardo Macedo, João Paulo and José Pereira from INESC TEC’s High Assurance Software laboratory (HASLab), was accepted in the scientific journal ACM Computing Surveys, one of the journals with the greatest impact factor in the field of Computer Science.

In the article, the researchers discuss different approaches to the Software-Defined Storage paradigm, whose goal is to improve end-to-end control and functionality of large-scale infrastructures, such as the cloud and supercomputers, as well as ensuring different levels of performance for users.

Written in co-authorship with Alysson Bessani, from LASIGE and the Faculty of Sciences of the University of Lisbon, this article – in addition to grouping and classifying all existing research in Software-Defined Storage – aims to unify the current view of the paradigm, identify future targets of research in the field, and promote advances in the current state of the art.

In 2018, according to the Journal Citation Reports, the journal ACM Computing Surveys, published by the Association for Computing Machinery (ACM), was classified with an impact factor of 6.131 and distinguished as A* and Q1.
