Fundamental advances in high-level storage architectures and low-level storage-device interfaces greatly improve the performance and scalability of storage systems. Specifically, the decoupling of storage control (i.e., file system policy) from datapath operations (i.e., read, write) allows client applications to leverage the readily available bandwidth of(More)
This paper describes the design and implementation of Sor-rento – a self-organizing storage cluster built upon commodity components. Sorrento complements previous researches on distributed file/storage systems by focusing on incremental expandability and manageability of the system and on design choices for optimizing performance of parallel data-intensive(More)
Cluster-based storage systems are popular for data-intensive applications and it is desirable yet challenging to provide incremental expansion and high availability while achieving scalability and strong consistency. This paper presents the design and implementation of a self-organizing storage cluster called Sorrento, which targets data-intensive workload(More)
Data integration from multiple autonomous data sources has emerged as an important practical problem. The key requirement for such data integration is that owners of such data need to cooperate in a competitive landscape in most of the cases. The research challenge in developing a query processing solution is that the answers to the queries need to be(More)
Peer-to-peer (P2P) systems research has gained considerable attention recently with the increasing popularity of file sharing applications. Since these applications are used for sharing huge amounts of data, it is very important to efficiently locate the data of interest in such systems. However, these systems usually do not provide efficient search(More)
A s the demand for high-speed, low-latency networks rises, InfiniBand has become increasingly popular as an interconnect in high-performance computing (HPC) clusters. Microsoft Windows HPC Server 2008 supports InfiniBand as a Remote Direct Memory Access (RDMA) network, which can enable cluster applications to take full advantage of the interconnect(More)
