FlashBack is a peer-to-peer replication middleware designed specifically for power-constrained devices. FlashBack provides a reliable storage layer for personal area networks (PANs) by spreading backup data among peers. It is designed to be scalable, fault-tolerant and opportunistic in the presence of fixed infrastructure. It also leverages heterogeneity within the PANs. This project examines the challenges presented by mobile personal devices. We propose the FlashBack architecture and algorithms, and present experimental results that illustrate FlashBack's performance characteristics.
