|| The OceanStore
Projects for Undergraduates and Graduates
We always looking for smart, highly-motivated students to contribute
to the design, implementation, and benchmarking of the OceanStore system.
Below is a list of possible OceanStore-related projects that are appropriate
for both undergraduates and graduate students. Of course, this is just
a small sample of what is possible, so be sure to talk to our project members about any ideas you might
have. Please note: these projects are for U. C. Berkeley students only, and
are not open to the general public.
- Data Repair
(Fall 2001) Traditional archival media are rapidly being
replaced with digital repositories. This has generated a need for
long-term, digital archival storage. OceanStore has describe the
architecture of a global-scale, distributed storage infrastructure
that is self-repairing and resilient to faults and malicious attacks.
This infrastructure employs erasure-coding to enhance durability,
coupled with mechanisms for location-independent routing,
introspective failure analysis, and automatic repair. The result is
archival storage that has the potential to preserve information
This project involves a significant amount of programming. Java programming
skills are required.
