The sciences, business confederations, and medicine urgently need infrastructure for sharing data and updates among collaborators' constantly changing, heterogeneous databases. The ORCHESTRA system addresses these needs by providing data transformation and exchange capabilities across DBMSs, com- bined with archived storage of all database versions. ORCHESTRA adopts a peer-to-peer architecture in which individual collabo- rators contribute data and compute resources, but where there may be no dedicated server or compute cluster. We study how to take the combined resources of ORCHES- TRA's autonomous nodes, as well as PCs from "cloud" services such as Amazon EC2, and provide reliable, cooperative storage and query processing capabilities. We guarantee reliability and correctness as in distributed or cloud DBMSs, while also sup- porting cross-domain deployments, replication, and transparent failover, as provided by peer-to-peer systems. Our storage and query subsystem supports dozens to hundreds of nodes across different domains, possibly including nodes on cloud services. Our contributions include (1) a modified data partitioning substrate that combines cluster and peer-to-peer techniques, (2) an efficient implementation of replicated, reliable, versioned storage of relational data, (3) new query processing and indexing techniques over this storage layer, and (4) a mechanism for incre- mentally recomputing query results that ensures correct, com- plete, and duplicate-free results in the event of node failure during query execution. We experimentally validate query processing performance, failure detection methods, and the performance benefits of incremental recovery in a prototype implementation.
