NDN-SCI for managing large scale genomics data


Genomics datasets are currently managed by iRODS, the Integrated Rule-Oriented Data System, which is an open source data management software. iRODS provides several services, including indexing, publishing, integrity, storage, and provenance. In this work, we investigate how NDN can seamlessly integrate into iRODS to provide simplified and improved functionality such as name-based data discovery, replication, retrieval, and computation at the edge. We show how to integrate these NDN based mechanisms as well as caching into iRODs. Once completely functional, we aim to study NDN’s benefits in a live, production system with real users.
