We have become accustomed to picking up the telephone and always
having a dial tone, whether we are at home or on the road. Turning
on a radio and hearing a traffic report or having it pushed down
to the DVD player in our car. Switching on the TV and seeing our
favorite show or start our TiVo and watch at our leisure . . . without
all the advertising! Clicking on an icon and always getting access
to the Website we want.
Now we want more! The networks and the infrastructure that have
to manage so many diverse devices are getting more and more complex,
but are they ready for it? As bandwidth increases we expect our
applications to be richer, always available, always accurate and
accessible from any device we own, anywhere, anytime; is it all
as simple to operate as a toaster? Is the infrastructure prepared
for this? Are the applications content rich enough? Are we there
yet, or what 's stopping us from getting there? Is autonomic data
management ready for what we are asking of it?
GUIDING QUESTIONS FOR THE PUB EXCHANGE
- Data management is at the heart of today's "soft switched"
infrastructures/environments. But how do we manage them for high
availability -- 99.999% and better -- and still cover every device
from the data center with its terra bytes of data to diskless
mobile devices (your cell phone or Blackberry)?
- As I develop my distributed application, how do I keep all
parts synchronized as I move from device to device or place to
- How do I recoup development time if I have to manage the infrastructure
or the fundamental processes required for a complex multi-media
