Increased scalability of the StormCast distributed application
Scaling is recognized as a primary concern in developing distributed applications. Scaling problems occur when an application reach its upper boundary in some way or another. This paper describes the considerations made in the redesign of the StormCast distributed application to achieve more scalability. Naturally, there can be many factors that restrict a system's scalability. The challenge meeting the designers of distributed applications is to limit the influence of such factors. In this paper we focus on modularity, decentralized approach to design of application, transparent naming, caching of information, replicated data and services in order to enhance scalability.
