Learn all about DSS, a scalable, high performance distributed data storage server and third generation project within the Earthlink Enterprise Management group. Unlike most other database engines, this open source server offers: completely policy driven distribution--replicated, not replicated; distributed data dictionary--each dictionary node totally autonomous; completely transparent distribution; dynamically reconfigurable distribution; transactional I/O model--transactions can be managed and mixed with nontransactional requests; transactions that span hosts/servers transparently; re-entrant server for multiple clients concurrence, multiple outstanding transactions per client, and multiple requests per transaction; simple C interface.
