Background Transfers with Minimal Interference

  title={Background Transfers with Minimal Interference},
  author={A. Venkataramani and Ravi Kokku and M. Dahlin},
Background transfer of data between clients and servers is an important task. In recent work, we have developed optimal algorithms for prefetching data to replicated storage locations [1,2] and demonstrated their potential effectiveness for web workloads [2]. More generally, pre-positioning data at distributed servers and clients has the potential to improve performance for a number of applications, and important system management functions such as system upgrades and backups. In the future, as… CONTINUE READING
