Delay-Tolerant Bulk Information Transfers on the Web

A. Amarnath


Abstract: Many rising scientific and industrial applications requiretransferringmultiple terabytes of knowledge on a commonplace. Examples include pushing scientific information from particle accelerators/ colliders to laboratories round the world; synchronizing datacenters across continents; and replicating collections of high-definition videos from events going down at totally different time-zones. Akey property of all higher than applications is their ability to tolerate delivery delays ranging from many hours to many days. Such delay-tolerant bulk (DTB) information square measure presently being serviceable largely by the communication systemvictimisation arduous drives and DVDs; or by pricy dedicated networks. In this paper; we tend to propose sending such information through commercial ISPs by taking advantage of already-paid-for off-season bandwidth ensuing from diurnal traffic patterns and grade pricing. we tend to show that between senderreceiver pairs with tiny time-zone distinction; straightforward supply programming policies square measure able to take advantage of most of the present off-season capability. When the time-zone distinction will increase; taking advantage of the complete capability requires playing store-and-forward through intermediate storagenodes. We gift an in depth analysis of the 2 options supported traffic information from 200+ links of an outsized transit provider with points of presence (PoPs) at 3 continents. Our results indicate that there exists Brobdingnagian potential for playing multiterabyte transfers on a commonplace at very little or no further price. Index TermsBandwidth rating; bulk information transfers; content distribution; delay-tolerant networks (DTNs).
