A Case for a Global Information Network
These services are primarily about information dissemination and a suitable network service abstraction should really do more than deliver individual packets with minimal latency. We argue that we should adopt an information-centric system model instead of the current service oriented one. Instead of dealing with information exchange between specific services on a case by case bases, we should instead consider a global information storage and dissemination network on which individual applications and services are built.
In this talk I will discuss our vision the future architecture and give a brief overview on our progress so far.
