Abstract

This paper addresses media sharing via an approach that offers ‘fungible’ storage, where storage services implement virtual stores that are dynamically mapped to suitable ‘nearby’ or otherwise available physical devices. In particular, the novel VStore++ system provides seamless and flexible data storage, access, and sharing services, by exploiting virtualization technology to aggregate and make use of both ‘nearby’ and private storage (e.g., in a mobile user’s home), and public storage resources offered on remote cloud platforms.
