The Quabbin Project
Next Generation Storage Services
UMass Computer Science
The Quabbin reservoir, located a few miles from Amherst, is one of the largest man-made repositories of water in the country. It supplies drinking water to much of eastern Massachusetts.
The goal of our research is to investigate next generation storage services. Metaphorically, like the Quabbin, we envision building a storage server that will act as large-scale repository of data and service a large user population.
