Chang, E. and Garcia-Molina, H. (1998) Cost-Based Media Server Design. In: Eighth Int. Workshop on Research Issues in Data Engineering: Continuous-Media Databases and Applications, February 23-24, 1998, Orlando, FL.
Conventional wisdom holds that reducing disk latency leads to higher disk utilization, maximizing disk utilization leads to higher throughput, and employing a faster disk leads to better performance. All of this is true when building a conventional file or database system. In this paper we show that these principles can be misleading when applied to a media server. To design such a server, we propose a cost-based approach that focuses on the per-stream costs. We give various examples to illustrate the design process.
