Rediscovering Distributed Systems

Steve Vinoski
2014 IEEE Internet Computing  
Long Beach, CA, USA "Meeting Real World Challenges through Software Technology" is the theme of STC 2014.  ...  Many of our attendees and their customers, rather than creating brand new software-intensive systems, will be updating code in embedded systems, integrating new capabilities, or otherwise retrofi tting  ...  The distributed systems silos of the 1980s gave way to industry standards built, for better or worse, on distributed object architectures.  ...

Physical Algorithms [chapter]

Roger Wattenhofer
2010 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
The networked systems we envision include traditional computer networks, but also more generally networked systems, such as social networks, highly dynamic and mobile networks, or even networks of entities  ...  In other words, the world is becoming algorithmic, and we need the means to analyze this world!  ...  Acknowledgements: Thanks to Christoph Lenzen, for discussing the topic, and for reading the manuscript.  ...

2014 Proceedings of the Ninth European Conference on Computer Systems - EuroSys '14  
This paper proposes a new approach to determining the order of interdependent operations in a distributed system.  ...  The key idea behind our approach is to factor the task of tracking happens-before relationships out of components that comprise the system, and to centralize them in a separate event ordering service.  ...  CNS-1111698, by Intel under Grant No. 10176559, the VMWare Graduate Fellowship program, and the National Science and Engineering Research Council of Canada.  ...

Firefly-Inspired Time Synchronization Mechanism For Self-Organizing Energy-Efficient Wireless Sensor Networks: A survey

Zeyad Ghaleb Al-Mekhlafi, Zurina Mohd Hanapi, Ahmed M. Shamsan Saleh
2019 IEEE Access  
For most situations, the PCO model is not appropriate for sensor networks because of high packet collision since WSNs cannot bear the cost of transmission and gathering data concurrently.  ...  In any case, a fascinating component of WSNs is that the PCO is utilized by the firefly synchronization to pull in mating accomplices; however, it cannot be utilized in genuine sensor networks.  ...  They are the sorts of wireless networks that require each sensor to act in a synchronized way [1] .  ...

Inter-destination multimedia synchronization: schemes, use cases and standardization

Mario Montagud, Fernando Boronat, Hans Stokking, Ray van Brandenburg
2012 Multimedia Systems  
Due to the increasing popularity of social networking, this type of multimedia synchronization has gained in popularity in recent years.  ...  Although Social TV is perhaps the most prominent use case in which IDMS is useful, in this paper we present up to 19 use cases for IDMS, each one having its own synchronization requirements.  ...  As well, the work in [22] revolves around a socially augmented rock concert in which four friends share the music experience and enrich it through social interaction and media sharing.  ...

Probabilistic Causal Message Ordering [chapter]

Achour Mostéfaoui, Stéphane Weiss
2017 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
The implementation of such a primitive has a non negligible cost either in terms of extra information messages have to carry or in time delays needed for the delivery of messages.  ...  This problem has gained more interest due to new application domains such that collaborative applications are widely used and are becoming massive and social semantic web and linked-data the implementation  ...  If only one concurrent message is received, the protocol delivers the message in causal order.  ...

2018 Proceedings of the 19th International Middleware Conference on - Middleware '18  
This paper studies the costs and trade-offs of providing transactional consistent reads in a distributed storage system.  ...  Guided by these results, we modify an existing protocol to ensure minimal-delay reads (at the cost of freshness) under atomic-visibility and causally-consistent semantics.  ...  Acknowledgments This research is supported in part by European FP7 project 609 551 SyncFree (2013-2016), by European H2020 project LightKone #732 505 (2017-2020), and by the RainbowFS project of Agence  ...
