Research Progress and Results • In the last several months of the project (during the no-cost extension), we have investigated providing parallel data processing services on distributed multi-core workstations. In particular, we explored an innovative hybrid architecture for data-intensive services on top of unreliable environments, by supplementing volatile nodes with a small group of dedicated, highly available nodes. We studied the impact of such an architecture on the data replication

Our results, obtained from Virginia Tech cluster using both synthetic node availability traces and a real-world desktop grid trace show promising results. We are submitting a technical paper on this study for conference publication.
