Group Scalability in Distributed Systems We address shortcomings of two important group communication paradigms, IP Multicast and gossip based message dissemination, both of which have scalability issues when the number of groups grows. First, we propose a transparent and backward-compatible layer called Dr. Multicast to allow data center administrators to enable IPMC for large numbers […]

Interest Driven Large Scale Pub/Sub Systems P2P overlay networks is an effective means for building Internet-scale distributed applications, and in particular those involving group-based information sharing. A key pre-requisite for supporting such applications on top of the overlays is the ability to efficiently distribute multicast messages to multiple subscribers dispersed across numerous multicast groups. In […]

Gossip-Based Video Streaming: Managing Heterogeneous Bandwidth Gossip-based information dissemination protocols are considered easy to deploy, scalable and resilient to network dynamics. Load-balancing is inherent in these protocols as the dissemination work is evenly spread among all nodes. Yet, large-scale distributed systems are usually heterogeneous with respect to network capabilities such as bandwidth. As such, gossip’s […]
