The lecture features three major topic areas:

  • Distributed Databases and Distributed Transaction Systems, representing the "classic" foundations of distributed storage with full transactional support
    • Data Fragmentation
    • Distributed Query Processing
    • Distributed Transaction Processing
  • P2P Systems, featuring ad-hoc distributed data storage in networks with unreliable peers
    • Unstructured P2P Networks
    • Distributed Hash Tables
    • Network Models
    • Content Provisioning Networks 
    • Durable P2P
  • Cloud Storage, aiming at a fusion of the previous two concepts and providing highly scalable and reliable distributed storage solutions
    • Concepts of Cloud Storage
    • Amazon Dynamo
