Final Projects

Eleven outstanding final class projects are available to view! Project presentations, papers, and source are available. However, they are only available within the Computer Science domain at Cornell. HERE

Project information


For the project, you will build, design, implement a system of your choice. There are six deadlines:


You should feel free to choose any project you like, as long as it is related to storage systems, distributed systems or operating systems. It must have a substantial system-building and evaluation component. A successful class project usually have very well defined goals and is modest in scope (Remember, you only have 2.5 months to finish it). You could look for inspiration about hot topics in the on-line proceedings of recent SOSP, OSDI, Usenix, and NSDI conferences.
Tips on preparing a paper appear appear here. Here's a list of ideas that we think could lead to interesting projects.
