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 the Emulab system that 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.
