Content-Addressable IBP - Rationale, Design and Performance
Rebecca L. Collins, James S. Plank
This paper describes an extension to the Internet Backplane Protocol (IBP), called Contentaddressable IBP (IBPCA). IBP is an important protocol in distributed, Web, Grid and peer-to-peer computing settings, as it allows clients in these settings to access, manipulate and manage remote storage depots in a scalable and fault-tolerant fashion. Contentaddressability adds the ability to reference storage by hashes of its contents. In this paper, we discuss the rationale behind IBPCA, important design decisions, and performance implications.
