Server infrastructure traditionally consists of monolithic servers containing all of the necessary hardware to run a computer. These different hardware components are located next to each other, and do not need to communicate over a network boundary to connect the CPU and memory.

LegoOS is a model for disaggregated, network-attached hardware. LegoOS disseminates the traditional operating system functionalities into loosely-coupled hardware and software components. By disaggregating data center infrastructure, the overall resource usage and failure rate of server infrastructure can be improved.

Yiying Zhang is an assistant professor of computer science at UCSD. Her research focuses on operating systems, distributed systems, and datacenter networking. She joins the show to discuss her work and its implications for data centers and infrastructure.
