OceanStore is a utility infrastructure designed to span the globe
and provide continuous access to persistent information. Since this
infrastructure is comprised of untrusted servers, data is protected through
redundancy and cryptographic techniques. To improve performance,
data is allowed to be cached anywhere, anytime. Additionally, monitoring
of usage patterns allows adaptation to regional outages and denial of service
attacks; monitoring also enhances performance through pro-active movement
of data. A prototype implementation is currently under development.
