Dexferizer: A service for data transfer optimization

Ercan Ucan, Timothy Roscoe
2011 2011 IEEE Nineteenth IEEE International Workshop on Quality of Service  
We present an approach to optimizing the transfer of data objects within a user's collection of computers and personal devices, subject to a variety of user-defined quality metrics such as cost, power consumption, and latency. By abstracting object transfer as a high-level service, and employing declarative networking techniques to cast object transfer as a constrained optimization problem, we show how to transparently exploit techniques as diverse as swarming and multi-hop transfer through
