The problem of server performance in a contemporary, rapidly developed and multi-discipline environment is examined. Multiple requests in a very short period of time increase the number of connections and push the server to the limit. Nowadays servers’ ability to work semi autonomously, in regards to the decision of the appropriate query plan and the provision of the effective data location, plays a significant role for the query and network performance. For autonomous server operations many of the offered services need to be self-managed. Data sources’ administration during the execution of the query plan becomes of primary interest especially for the starting query server. The proposed server grouping process, server’s scale up capabilities and the application of Data Mining concepts in a wireless environment can contribute a lot to the optimization of the query plan and also increase server independence. Various methods of distributed data exploration and exploitation that support server’s semi-autonomous operational behavior are developed. Simulation results are provided. This chapter covers a significant part of cooperative domains in the area of information management and can offer integrated solutions very attractive to the mobile users.
