Description:Data management, including data replication, is a central aspect on the design of most distributed systems, ranging from web applications to emerging Internet of Things (IoT) applications.
In this project we propose to tackle the emergent challenges in the design and implementation of modern data storage and management systems regarding the needs of global-scale distributed systems such as social networks and emerging large-scale IoT applications that are expected to generate and manipulate an unprecedented amount of data. To address this need, we plan to focus on three complementary aspects of data storage and management systems: i) designing systems that can provide flexible and efficient partial replication with a large number of replicas, potentially scattered among datacenters and edge devices, such as set top boxes, or smart 5G towers that will soon become available; ii) enrich the design of the data storage and management system with mechanisms to automatically
