Date Stanley B. Zdonik Recommended to the Graduate Council Date Thomas W. Doeppner Date Maurice P. Herlihy Date Michael J. Franklin University of Maryland, College Park Approved by the Graduate Council Date Vita Swarup Acharya was born on September 23 rd , 1969, in Calcutta, India. He did primary and secondary schooling in various cities in India and received his Secondary (Class X) and Higher Secondary degrees (Class XII) from Kendriya Vidyalaya, Air Force Stationin Jamnagar, Gujrat. In August 1987, he joined the Indian Institute of Technology, Kharagpur for his baccalaureate studies. He was awarded a Bachelor of Technology (Honours) degree in Computer Science and Engineering in May 1991. Subsequently, he joined the doctoral program in the Computer Science Department at Brown University, Providence and he received an Sc.M degree in Com- puter Science in May 1993. iii Abstract The increasing ability to interconnect computers through internetworking, wireless networks, high-bandwidth satellite,and cable networkshas spawneda new class of information-centered applications based on data dissemination . These applications, which often serve huge client populations, employ broadcast to efficiently deliver data to the clients. In data dissemination, the data transfer is initiated by the server, inverting the traditional relationship between the client and the server. This thesis proposes a novel “multi-disk” framework for data dissemina- tion called Broadcast Disks . The Broadcast Disks approach significantly improves upon the previous work in dissemination-based systems and raises a number of fundamentally new research challenges. In this thesis, we first motivate why the rise of asymmetric environments (i.e., networks which have a significantly higher bandwidth available from servers to clients than in the re- verse direction) and the scale of the emerging distributed information systems is causing a shift from the traditional pull-based client-server model to a push-based dissemination model....
