The project proposes to address the problem of maintaining strongly-consistent replicated data in a large-scale setting. To achieve this goal, the project intends to combine the recent research of replication management with broadcast protocols optimized for large-scale operation. The project, departs from recent efforts to implement and optimize topology-aware broadcast algorithms, as well as semantically reliable algorithms and intends to configure and tune them in the specific application area of database replication. It is expected that the novel combination of these approaches can result in a solution that exhibits enough performance to sustain the management of the critical application data that strictly requires strong consistency.
