UniStore: Querying a DHT-based Universal Storage
In recent time, the idea of collecting and combining large public data sets and services became more and more popular. The special characteristics of such systems and the requirements of the participants demand for strictly decentralized solutions. However, this comes along with several ambitious challenges a corresponding system has to overcome. In this demonstration paper, we present a light-weight distributed universal storage capable of dealing with those challenges, and providing a powerful and flexible way of building Internet-scale public data management systems. We introduce our approach based on a triple storage on top of a DHT overlay system, based on the ideas of a universal relation model and RDF, outline solved challenges and open issues, and present usage as well as demonstration aspects of the platform.
