Hitachi Energy

At Hitachi Energy our purpose is advancing a sustainable​ energy future for all. We bring power to our homes, schools, hospitals and factories. Join us and work with fantastic people, while learning and developing yourself on projects that have a real impact to our communities and society. Bring your passion, bring your energy, and be part of a global team that appreciates a simple truth: Diversity + Collaboration = Great Innovation

With more than 35’000 employees, Hitachi Energy is the largest global supplier of products, systems and services for building and operating electric power infrastructure. At Hitachi Energy Research, the globally distributed research organization of Hitachi Energy, we apply interdisciplinary knowledge to invent and design the power system of the future. In close collaboration with our business units, academia, and customers, we aim to address societal challenges such as rising global energy demand, growing integration of renewable energy sources and climate change. We deliver innovations that ensure that electrical power is supplied reliably, efficiently, and effectively. Are you looking for an M.Sc./B.Sc. thesis in software systems? At Hitachi Energy Research, we have a thesis proposal on supporting stateful failover in container orchestrators such as Kubernetes. More specifically, the default Kubernetes redundancy concept involves multiple active replicas, which share the load among each other, and are independent. As a result, when a replica fails or the node on which it is running fails, other replicas can ensure continued service availability. This mechanism is well-suited for stateless services. However, this is not the case for stateful services having an internal state that needs to be preserved. In this thesis, you will explore and evaluate the use of tailored Kubernetes operators or alternative concepts to implement an active-standby failover mechanism with the support of a checkpoint and restore tool (e.g., CRIU). The target use case for this work is a critical infrastructure scenario, in particular power grids. Apply now for this opportunity and become a member of our team of highly skilled researchers and engineers. The expected duration for this thesis is 6 months. Our flexible work practices help you optimize personal and business performance while creating an environment where all employees can develop their skills and grow.
