Multicomputers have traditionally been viewed as powerful compute engines. It is from this perspective that they have been applied to various problems in order to achieve significant performance gains. There are many applications for which this compute intensive approach is only a partial solution. CAD, virtual reality, simulation, document management and analysis all require timely access to large amounts of data. This thesis investigates the use of the object store paradigm to harness thearXiv:cs/0004010v1 fatcat:nnjr3q3fbzehvecl4kmicgxsam
