Sirius: Distributing and Coordinating Application Reference Data
Michael Bevilacqua-Linn, Maulan Byron, Peter Cline, Jon Moore, and Steve Muir
Sirius is an open-source library that provides developers of applications that require reference data with a simple in-memory object model while transparently managing cluster replication and consistency. We describe the design and implementation of Sirius in the context of TV and movie metadata, but Sirius has since been used in other applications at Comcast, and it is intended to support a broad class of applications and associated reference data.
