The Kangaroo Approach to Data Movement on the Grid

  title={The Kangaroo Approach to Data Movement on the Grid},
  author={Douglas Thain and Jim Basney and Se-Chang Son and Miron Livny},
Accessto remotedata is oneof theprincipal challenges of grid computing. WhileperformingI/O, grid applications mustbe prepared for servercrashes,performancevariations,andexhaustedresources.To achievehigh throughput in such a hostileenvironment,applicationsneeda resilient servicethat movesdata while hiding errors and latencies. We illustratethis ideawith Kangaroo,a simpledatamovementsystemthat makesopportunisticuseof disksandnetworks to keepapplicationsrunning. We demonstr ate that Kangaroo… CONTINUE READING
