The goal of project ReD is to achieve a generic, robust, and inexpensive shared-storage cluster from an off-the-shelf RDBMS. In detail, the project will deliver the following concrete results:
A general architecture and specification of the proposed approach.
An exploration of the performance, scalability, and dependability aspects of the approach, highlighting the most interesting tradeoffs.
A detailed experimental evaluation, using the prototype and industry standard transaction processing benchmarks.
