The DBGlobe project aims at developing novel data management techniques to deal with the challenge of global computing. On the premise, global computing is a database problem: how to design, build and analyse systems that manage large amount of data. However, the traditional database approach of storing data of interest in monolithic database management systems becomes obsolete in such environments. In current database research, data are relatively homogeneous, exhibit a small degree of distribution (just a few network sites) are passive in that they remain unchanged unless explicitly updated. All these assumptions do not hold in the global computing world. This creates the need for new theoretical foundations in all aspects of data management: modelling, storage and querying.
