• Application-Layer Anycasting 

      Bhattacharjee, Samrat; Ammar, Mostafa H. (Mostafa Hamed); Zegura, Ellen W.; Shah, Viren; Fei, Zongming (Georgia Institute of Technology, 1996)
      Server replication is a key approach for maintaining user-perceived quality of service within a geographically wide-spread network. The anycasting communication paradigm is designed to support server replication by ...
    • A Novel Server Selection Technique for Improving the Response Time of a Replicated Service 

      Fei, Zongming; Bhattacharjee, Samrat; Zegura, Ellen W.; Ammar, Mostafa H. (Mostafa Hamed) (Georgia Institute of Technology, 1997)
      Server replication is an approach often used to improve the ability of a service to handle a large number of clients. One of the important factors in the efficient utilization of replicated servers is the ability to ...
    • Optimal Allocation of Clients to Replicated Multicast Servers 

      Fei, Zongming; Ammar, Mostafa H. (Mostafa Hamed); Zegura, Ellen W. (Georgia Institute of Technology, 1999)
      Server replication is an approach that is often used to improve the scalability of a service. One of the important factors in the efficient utilization of replicated servers is the ability to direct client requests to ...
    • Providing Interactive Functions through Active Client Buffer Management in Partitioned Video Broadcast 

      Fei, Zongming; Ammar, Mostafa H. (Mostafa Hamed); Kamel, Ibrahim; Mukherjee, Sarit (Georgia Institute of Technology, 1999)
      Partitioned video broadcast divides a video into segments and sends each segment over one channel in cycles. In this paper, we propose an active buffer management scheme to provide interactive functions in partitioned video ...
    • Scalable Delivery of Web Pages Using Cyclic Best-Effort (UDP) Multicast 

      Almeroth, Kevin C.; Ammar, Mostafa H. (Mostafa Hamed); Fei, Zongming (Georgia Institute of Technology, 1997)
      The World Wide Web (WWW) has gained tremendously in popularity over the last several years. Solutions to the problem of overloaded web servers have included buying more hardware, the use of transparent server replication ...
