Home Migration Using a Structured Peer-To-PeerOverlay Network
(English)Manuscript (preprint) (Other academic)
This paper presents the design and implementation of a decentralized home-migration protocol for the Distribution SubSystem(DSS) middleware. The DSS provides generic distribution support for shared data structures in open distributed systems. Previous approaches for migrating homes, such as forward pointers, broadcasts, and centralized directory services are known to have disadvantages. We propose using a structured P2P system to store the location of migrated homes. This enables seamless migration of homes, without the need for lengthy forward pointer chains that degrade performance and robustness. Nor is a dedicated data-base that requires administrative effort needed. The presented design depicts how the self-organizing aspects of peer-to-peer computing can be used to construct a fault-tolerant, scalable, efficient, distributed home-location service to enhance middleware functionality.
