server's utilization and global information. Unlike previous studies, service decisions will
be made in the local node instead of in the central system of a cluster.
Third, we plan to investigate problems with the storage systems used in cluster
based Web servers, with an emphasis on improving performance of storage bounded
services. With the increasing number of data centric Web services, reliant and secure
storage systems grow in demand. Therefore, we will device technologies which are able
to satisfy requirements from multiple dimensions, such as capacity, security, latency and
fault tolerant performance.
