Scaling a Shared Object Space to the Internet: Case Study of Virat

By: A. Vijay Srinivas, D. Janakiram

Abstract

We present the case study of scaling an existing shared object space (Virat) to the Internet. Bottlenecks in Virat include the granularity of consistency maintenance and Object Meta-data Repository (OMR) failures. Both the design and implementation of Virat has been modified in order to increase the granularity at which consistency is maintained. Virat has also been redesigned such that the OMRs form a Peer-to-Peer (P2P) overlay in order to handle OMR failures and improve scalability.
