Abstract:

Complex computing systems are predominantly networked. As a result, they must operate under increasingly unpredictable and changeable conditions. This problem occurs at multiple levels, ranging from distributed applications that are geographically dispersed to applications that are embedded and componentized. Both types of applications pose similar problems and issues, and lend themselves to similar solutions using strategies, algorithms, and optimizations at various levels of granularity. In particular, they require predictable mission-critical levels of service end-to-end. Adaptive distributed object computing DOC middleware is a promising approach to provide these end-to-end services by coordinating lower-level mechanisms that coordinate application- or user-centric tradeoffs.
