Design and Evaluation of a Wide-Area Distributed Shared Memory Middleware

Lookup NU author(s): Michele Mazzucco, Professor Graham MorganORCiD



This paper describes the design, implementation and experimental evaluation of an object-based Distributed Shared Memory middleware system. That system is unique among the existing DSMs as it structures the entire distributed system into small, completely independent subsystems; it enables the interaction among nodes belonging to the same subsystem, only, and allows processes to migrate dynamically between subsystems. The resulting implementation allows one to construct event-based distributed systems using a simple programming model; thus, applications can be deployed in any environment as neither hardware or software assumptions are made, nor reliable channels are required.
