Syndicate demo

Reported by: Owned by:
Priority: major Milestone:
Component: PLANETLAB Version: SPIRAL4
Keywords: GEC13 Cc:


  1. Brief demo description (A few sentences suitable for a GEC13 attendee information page. See for examples.)

Syndicate is a distributed read-write filesystem which harnesses a CDN to deliver file data to a scalable number of readers. It provides the semantics of a traditional distributed filesystem, but by leveraging a CDN it decouples read performance from file persistence. This allows users to keep their data in Syndicate on the media of their choice without impacting aggregate read bandwidth. We will present a walk-through of the functionality Syndicate offers to users, and show how many readers spread across PlanetLab can concurrently read a large file from an origin server's USB stick by streaming the data through a CoBlitz CDN instance in VICCI.
