Distributed Data Storage Based on Web Access and IBP Infrastructure
Source: Masaryk University
This paper introduces an environment for distributed data storage based on Web access and an Internet Backplane Protocol storage infrastructure as well as a model for distributed data storage and load balanced Web front-ends. It describes combining a Web load balancing system with an IBP storage. Integrating Web access with IBP through libxio provides an access interface to the large storage capacities. Security aspects and solution for highly secure data storage based on users' certificates is discussed as well as integration of IBP storage with files versioning. Mention is also made of four pilot groups that uses this system for storing digital pictures and videos.
