Design of a Framework for Data-Intensive Wide-Area Applications
Applications that use collections of very large, distributed datasets have become an increasingly important part of science and engineering. With high performance wide-area networks becoming more pervasive, there is interest ...
Optimizing Execution of Component-based Applications using Group Instances
Applications that query, analyze and manipulate very large data sets have become important consumers of resources. With the current trend toward collectively using heterogeneous collections of disparate machines (the ...
Performance Impact of Proxies in Data Intensive Client-Server Parallel Applications
Large client-server data intensive applications can place high demands on system and network resources. This is especially true when the connection between the client and server spans a wide-area internet link. In ...
A Component-based Implementation of Iso-surface Rendering for Visualizing Large Datasets
Isosurface rendering is a technique for extracting and visualizing surfaces within a 3D volume. It is a widely used visualization method in many application areas. In this paper, we describe a component-based implementation ...
The Virtual Microscope
We present the design and implementation of the Virtual Microscope, a software system employing a client/server architecture to provide a realistic emulation of a high power light microscope. The system provides a form ...
