Year of entry: 2016 Name: EPSRC PhD studentship on Machine Learning-Driven Generation of Congestion Control and Flow Scheduling Algorithms for Improving Data Centre Performance Summary: Postgraduate Research, £14,057 tax free stipend plus fees waiver. Deadline: January 4th, 2016 Amount: £14,057 tax free stipend plus a fee waiver to the UK/EU amount Region: UK, EU. Project Overview: Data centres consist of racks of commodity servers interconnected by multiple, high bandwidth links. The Transmission Control Protocol (TCP), the de-facto protocol for reliably transmitting data, is not appropriate for data centres; it is single-path and its congestion control algorithm, which regulates senders so that network congestion is minimised, while resources are utilised efficiently and fairly, follows a one-size-fits-all approach. On the other hand, data centres support high-speed, low-latency links and multiple paths among…
