Distributed Resource Broker

Hi friends, today I’m going to share about a very interesting project that I am currently involving with. It’s about developing a Distributed Resource Broker. This is an application that is useful in managing large volume of data in data intensive applications. The intension of this application is to store and manage huge number of large size files in a distributed system. The resource broker will handle all the tough part of the work including replica management and give an abstract view to the user where the user can simply upload, download, delete and search the files uploaded by him.

The network is a peer to peer (P2P) network and we are using an existing peer to peer substrate FreePastry for this purpose. We will be exposing an API with those above mentioned functionalities where a java client or a web client can use our API and customize our service.

I’ll present you some more details about this Distributed Resource Broker in future :)
