This thesis demonstrates and evaluates the design, architecture, and implementation of a file location, replication, and distribution system built with the objective of managing information in an Internet network. The system's goal is to enable the availability of information by providing alternative locations for files in case of situations where the original piece of information cannot be found in the network due to failures or other problems. The system provides the mechanism for duplicating files and executes the act of placing them in multiple locations according to predefined rules for distribution. The resulting system is a working model for a file management system that can exist over the Internet and will aid in overall network management by organizing and overseeing the information found within a network.
