Chunk upload and XND server. (A) The DB Uploading Server uses the LoRS upload tool to upload each chunk of a database. The chunk is replicated and fragmented depending on the parameters given to the upload tool before being stored in the IBP network as IBP allocations. (B) The DBList maintains a list of all the databases that have been uploaded and are available, and the information associated with them (e.g., the no of chunks, the list of xnd files, etc).
