A Low Latency, Loss Tolerant Architecture and Protocol for Wide Area Group Communication
Group communication systems are proven tools upon which to build fault-tolerant systems. As the demands for fault-tolerance increase and more applications require reliable distributed computing over wide area networks, wide area group communication systems are becoming very useful. However, building a wide area group communication system is a challenge. This paper presents the design of the transport protocols of the Spread wide area group communication system. We focus on two aspects of the system. First, the value of using overlay networks for application level group communication services. Second, the requirements and design of effective low latency link protocols used to construct wide area group communication. We support our claims with the results of live experiments conducted over the Internet. Keywords—Group Communication, Overlay Networks, Reliable Multicast, Wide Area Networks, TCP/IP.
