The Distributed & Cloud Computing Lab, currently directed by professor Heonchang Yu, korea

was established in 1998 as a one of the most pioneer laboratories in distributed computing areas located at Korea University. Over the past decades, D&C lab researchers have made valuable contribution in a wide range of distributed computing research such as mobile computing, fault tolerant systems, peer to peer computing, grid computing and cloud computing.

Currently, our lab serves as the focal point for research on Cloud Computing including data management, mobility management, fault tolerant and dependable services, overlay network construction, checkpoint, spot instance management of virtual machines, cost-efficient scheduling algorithms, replication of resources etc.
