Managing Data Storage in the Network
September/October 2001 (vol. 5 no. 5)
pp. 50-58

Efficient management of program state is critical to performance and functionality in distributed and network applications. To support domain- and application-specific optimization of data movement, the authors developed the Internet Backplane Protocol (IBP) for controlling storage that is implemented as part the network fabric itself. IBP allows an application to control intermediate data staging operations explicitly as data is communicated between processes. As such, the application can exploit locality and manage scarce buffer resources effectively. This article discusses the development of IBP, the implementation of a prototype system for managing network storage, and a preliminary deployment as part of the Internet2 Distributed Storage Initiative. Keywords: network storage, logistical networking, network buffers.
