UniStore: Querying a DHT-based Universal Storage
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 lightweight 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 distributed hash table (DHT) overlay system, based on the ideas of a universal relation model and the resource description framework (RDF), and outline solved challenges as well as open issues.
