Abstract
Data placement is an essential part of today's distributed
applications since moving the data close to the application
has many benefits. The increasing data requirements of both
scientific and commercial applications, and collaborative
access to these data make it even more important. In the
current approach, data placement is regarded as a side af-
fect of computation. Our goal is to make data placement a
first class citizen in distributed computing systems just like
the computational jobs. They will be queued, scheduled,
monitored, managed, and even checkpointed. Since data
placement jobs have different characteristics than compu-
tational jobs, they cannot be treated in the exact same way
