Reproducing experimental results in nowadays seen as one the greatest impairments for the progress of science in general and in the distributed systems and databases field in particular. This stems from the increasing complexity of the systems under study and the inherent complexity of capturing and controlling all variables that can potentially affect the project autcome. In this project, we will address this problem with a systematic approach to all the stages of the evaluation process with two complementary goals: precisely describe the environment and variables affecting the experiment and minimize the number of variables affecting it. The outcome of the project will be an open-source evaluation platform able to deploy, control the network topology, inject faults, monitor the whole experiment and derive the summary statistics of the experimental data.
