ECHOS: edge capacity hosting overlays of nano data centers
In this paper we propose a radical solution to data hosting and delivery for the Internet of the future. The current data delivery architecture is "network centric", with content stored in data centers connected directly to Internet backbones. This approach has multiple drawbacks among which complexity of deploying data centers, power consumption, and lack of scalability are the most critical ones. We propose a totally innovative and orthogonal approach to traditional data centers, through what we call "nano" data centers, which are essentially boxes deployed at the edge of the network (e.g., in home gateways, set-top-boxes, etc.) that cooperate in a peer-to-peer manner. Unlike traditional peer-to-peer clients, however, our nano data centers operate under a common management authority, e.g., the ISP who installs and maintains the set-top-boxes, and can thus cooperate more effectively and achieve a higher aggregate performance. Nano data centers are, therefore, bett...
