Research

PRObE is a one-of-a-kind computer facility dedicated to large-scale systems research. The facility allows hands-on operation of very large compute resources. Researchers have complete remote control of the hardware and software while running experiments and can inject both hardware and software failures while monitoring the system for reactions. Any operating system can be deployed on the systems through Emulab which is used to coordinate the machines. We envision this unique resource will support research in many systems related fields such as storage, networking, resiliency, big data, and other data-intensive applications. As far as we know, no other system at this scale in the world provides this ability.

Please note! All PRObE systems at the New Mexico Consortium will be shut down indefinitely on Dec 30th, 2016. If you have questions or concerns, please direct them to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
