Efficient management of program state is critical to performance and
functionality in distributed and network applications. To support
domain- and application-specific optimization of data movement, the
authors developed the Internet Backplane Protocol (IBP) for
controlling storage that is implemented as part the network fabric
itself. IBP allows an application to control intermediate data
staging operations explicitly as data is communicated between
processes. As such, the application can exploit locality and manage
scarce buffer resources effectively. This article discusses the
development of IBP, the implementation of a prototype system for
managing network storage, and a preliminary deployment as part of the
Internet2 Distributed Storage Initiative.
