Globule

[Globule for Windows -- concluded on 2005/09/01]

Globule is a research project that aims at developing a user-centric Content Delivery Network (CDN). Such a network consists as an overlay in which the nodes are owned by end users rather than ISPs.

In Globule, nodes transparently collaborate to provide strong guarantees with respect to performance and availability of Web documents. To this end, modules were developed that extend the basic functionality of the Apache2 Web server, and take care of automatically replicating Web documents, and redirecting clients to the replica server that can best service the request.
