Jenn-Wei Lin is a Distinguished Research Professor in the Department of Computer Science and Information Engineering, Fu Jen Catholic University (FJCU), Taiwan. He is heading the Cloud Computing and Networks Laboratory in FJCU, which focuses on the research of cloud computing, Internet of things, blockchain, mobile computing and networks, and fault-tolerant computing. He has been in charge of many important research projects, such as Blockchain-based Cloud Platform for Medical Data Analytics, Software-Defined Servers for IoT Data Centers, Big Data Storage Management for Telecom Traffic, High-Performance Storage Mechanisms for Gaming Cloud Data cloud computing, etc. All research projects are sponsored by Ministry of Science and Technology, Taiwan. He was a researcher at Chunghwa Telecom Co., Ltd., Taoyuan, Taiwan from 1993 to 2001.
Cloud computing provides scalable computing and storage resources via Internet. It also enables users to access services without regard to where the services are provided and how they are delivered, similar to water, electricity, gas, and telephony utilities. With the flexible and transparent features in the resource allocation and service provisioning, more and more applications are developed in the cloud computing environment. Recently, our cloud computing research on the applications of medical data analytics and IoT.
Security and privacy are very important for medical records. Blockchain has the de-centralized, untemperable, and undeniable properties. It is extensively discussed how to integrate medical data and blockchain technology. The main goal of this sub-project is to design a highly reliable cloud platform for integrating distributed medical records based on blockchain technology. The cloud platform can provide medical records exchange, parallel data analytics, and computing resources for medical applications. We elaborate the cloud computing research for blockchain-based medical data analytics.
With the rapid growth of Internet of Things (IoT), the data center must be set up for storing large amount of sensor data and executing various applications. It is important to design a software-defined server (SDSer) cloud platform for the IoT data center in order to efficiently execute IoT service and management applications. The server platform is with the energy-saving and SLA-guaranteed features. The SDSer is based on the virtualization technique to divide the computing resources of a physical server into several virtual machines (SDSers). Then, difference applications are run in such SDSers, respectively. Compared to the execution manner of a physical server with one application, the SDSers can efficiently utilize the whole computing resources of the IoT data center. The IoT based cloud computing research issues are elaborated as follows.
