The DASH project at UC Berkeley is studying problems arising in the design of large, high-performance distributed systems, and is building an experimental system. The system's major design goals are centered in three areas: 1) IPC performance, 2) global architecture, and 3) local architecture. In each of these areas, vertically integrated mechanisms are used to achieve design goals, while an open system structure is maintained where possible. This report describes the motivation and principles of the DASH project, and sketches the current design of the DASH system.
