Paper Abstract

Hypermedia applications use multimedia objects that are linked to each other via some application logic. Also, hypermedia applications can potentially become very storage intensive because of the nature of data in them. Hierarchical storage systems are an excellent way to store large hypermedia applications. In this paper we look, at the problem of placing multimedia objects in a hierarchical storage system so that their retrieval meets the needs of the application while at the same time keeping storage intensive data on cheaper storage. We use an abstract hierarchy approach along with an enhancement of the relationship management methodology to prose a framework for the design of hypermedia applications. The abstract hierarchy consists of a hierarchy of abstracts growing in size and linked together. The intrinsic nature of the abstract hierarchy makes it possible to map it easily to both the hierarchical storage system and the hypermedia application paradigm. In this framework, the designer can determine where each abstract of the application can be placed on the storage system.
