Edouard Bugnion joined EPFL in 2012, where his focus is on datacenter systems. His areas of interest include operating systems, datacenter infrastructure (systems and networking), and computer architecture.

Before joining EPFL, Edouard spent 18 years in the US, where he studied at Stanford and co-founded two startups: VMware and Nuova Systems (acquired by Cisco). At VMware from 1998 until 2005, he played many roles including CTO. At Nuova/Cisco from 2005 until 2011, he helped build the core engineering team and became the VP/CTO of Cisco’s Server, Access, and Virtualization Technology Group, a group that brought to market Cisco’s Unified Computing System (UCS) platform for virtualized datacenters.

Together with his colleagues, he received the ACM Software System Award for VMware 1.0 in 2009. His paper “Disco: Running Commodity Operating Systems on Scalable Multiprocessors” received a Best Paper Award at SOSP ’97 and was entered into the ACM SIGOPS Hall of Fame Award in 2008. At EPFL, he received Best Paper Award from OSDI 2014 (IX) and Eurosys 2020 (HoverCraft).

Prof. Bugnion is a Fellow of the ACM and a member of the Swiss Academy of Engineering Sciences (SATW).
