Alumni Project

Optimizing Performance and Enhancing Functionality of Distributed Applications Using Logistical Networking

This project proposes to develop tools and services to build scalable logistical network infrastructures for global scheduling and optimization of large-scale data movement, storage, and computation based on a model that takes into account all of the network underlying physical resources, especially storage. An essential part of this project is the development of an Internet Backplane Protocol (IBP) and data mover interfaces for managing remote data depots (storage) imbedded into networks that will be used to develop and implement a storage-enable high-performance network for distributed data-intensive applications.
