The design of scalable video servers with high throughput is receiving considerable attention with the growing popularity of VOD services. This paper presents a design solution we call scalable and cooperative interval caching (SCIC) for clustered video servers. SCIC uses interval caching and cache cooperation done by hash-based request distribution, and a(More)
Deductive database systems combine a declarative style for formulating queries and constraints with efficient and reliable database technology for mass-memory data storage. They have the ability to use a logic programming style for expressing deductions concerning the contents of a database. Currently, most of the deductive-style databases such as NAIL!,(More)
