AdaptiveZ Research Group designs fault-tolerant, persistent and availability strategies for facing up current challenges such as site failure scenarios, large data volume management and dynamic growth of data. The proposed strategies are based on storage abstractions, middlewares, and virtualization architectures for adaptive and distributed storage systems. We develop prototypes based on the proposed new designs and we test them in systems such as Cloud-based storage, traditional RAID and distributed storage. Some of them are on-line available for organizations at the technological development section.
Adaptive Heterogeneous Storage
In this line, researchers propose architectures for facing up the big-data challenge by including new data placement methods, tasks scheduling policies and heterogeneity management.
Persistent Cloud-based Storage
In this line, researchers develop persistent schemes to allow the organizations to withstand site failure scenarios by applying fault-tolerant, and data availability strategies to federated cloud-based approaches. This line is specially focused on archival storage systems for linguistic heritage of endangered languages such as Mayan, Tének, and Nahuatl.
