NG-STORAGE: New Generation of Data Storage and Management Systems

Portuguese Research Project with grant ID #PTDC/CCI-INF/32038/2017 active from October 2018 to September 2021

This project is funded by Fundação para a Ciência e a Tecnologia.

Total Funding Amount: 239.000€


Data management, including data replication, is a central aspect on the desing of distributed systems and information systems, ranging from web to Internet of Things applications. Considering increasing scale of such systems, motivated by growing user bases or by the increase of data sources and volumes, partial replication is becoming an increasing relevant aspect that should be tackled by data storage and management systems.
In this project we propose ourselves to tackle new emergent challenges in data storage and management systems related with three complementary aspects:

  • Flexible and large-scale partial replication
  • Self-management of replicas life-cycles
  • Providing different consistency garantees when replicating diffent data objects

Results of this research will be demonstrated through propotypes that explore the benefits and usefulness of these results in scenarios such as global-scale web applications and emerging large-scale Internet of Things scenarios.
