Future of epZilla

Future plan for the epZilla is consists of 2 major phases. During the first phase, we are planning to implement a demonstration using a Demonstration language such as Promela which is specifically designed to create distributed system modeling. This demonstration will be created after completing a research for Distributed systems with Scalability, Fault Tolerance, Load Balancing in the hosts . etc.

In the second phase, we will move towards a full featured small scale implementation of the epZilla system. We will use the same architecture we simulated at the phase one.

Current Work @ epZilla

The original project proposal for project epzilla was submitted on the 6th of July 2009 and the software requirement specification was submitted on the 31st of July 2009. Currently the development team is working on several areas regarding the project, the project literature survey is currently being updated and the the existing architecture analysis document is also being updated. The official website for project epzilla is being developed with the help of joomla.

Aside from that the main focus of late has been the research into various distributed algorithms. Currently various existing and theoretical distributed architectures are being analysed in the context of scalability and fault tolerant nature of the architectures in order to identify and solve various problems which exist in them . Since epzilla is a distributed architecture we hope that the information and knowledge gathered in the current on going research would be essential for us in developing a optimal architecture as the final result of the project.

Welcome to epZilla

Welcome to epZilla
epZilla is a scalable and fault tolerant architecture for complex event processing systems. The Project epZilla, which is based on a concept originally proposed by Mr. Manusha Wijekoon is a final year project researched and developed by four students of the Computer Science and Engineering Department of University of Moratuwa, Srilanka.

The Current team members are:
Harshana Martin
Dishan Metihakwala
Rajeev Sampath
Chathura Randika
