In the MAGIC project, three major components-an ATM internetwork, a distributed, network-based storage system; and a terrain visualization application-were designed, implemented, and integrated to create a testbed for demonstrating real-time, interactive exchange of data at high speeds distributed resources. The MAGIC internetwork, depicted includes six high-speed local area networks (LANs) interconnected by a wide area network (WAN) backbone. The testbed was developed as a system, with special consideration to how performance was affected by interactions among the components. This article presents an overview of the project, with emphasis on the challenges associated with implementing complex distributed system, and with coordinating a multi-organization collaborative project that relied on distributed development. System level design issues and performance measurements are described, as it is a tool that was developed for analyzing performance and diagnosing problems in a distributed system. The management challenges that were encountered and some of the lessons learned during the course of the three-year project are discussed, and a brief summary of MAGIC-II, a follow-on project, is given
