Reliable Communication Infrastructure for Adaptive Data Replication
Source: University of Lausanne
In this paper, the authors propose a data replication algorithm adaptive to unreliable environments. The data replication algorithm, named Adaptive Data Replication (ADR), has already an adaptiveness mechanism encapsulated in its dynamic replica placement strategy. Their extension of ADR to unreliable environments provides a data replication solution that is adaptive both in terms of replica placement and in terms of request routing. At the routing level, this solution takes the unreliability of the environment into account, in order to maximize reliable delivery of requests. At the replica placement level, the dynamically changing origin and frequency of read/write requests are analyzed, in order to de ne a set of replica that minimizes communication cost.
