Distributed network storage service with quality-of-service guarantees
This paper envisions a distributed network storage service with Quality-ofService (QoS) guarantees, and describes its architecture and key mechanisms. When fully realized, this service architecture would be able to support, in one integrated framework, network storage services ranging from best-effort caching to replication with performance guarantees. Content owners could, through the use of standardized protocols, reserve network storage resources to satisfy their application-specific performance requirements. They would be able to specify either the number and/or placement of the replicas, or higher-level performance goals based on access latency, bandwidth usage or data availability. The network storage provider would then optimally allocate storage resources to meet the service commitments, using leftover capacity for best-effort caching. Content consumers would then retrieve the nearest copy of the data object, be it from a replica, cache, or the original source, in a completely...
