System Support for Scalable, Reliable, and Highly Manageable Web Hosting Service
This paper presents the architecture and some key mechanisms of an integrated framework for providing a reliable and highly manageable Web hosting service on a scalable server cluster. We devise a novel idea termed "URL Formalization" and a corresponding data structure, which provide a scalable solution to the request distribution in the system. We exploit the advantages of Java to implement a management system to providing a highly manageable system. Our system supports a higher level of services reliability than other server cluster systems. The result of performance evaluation on the proposed system shows that the system is low-cost and effective.
