Maintaining Information about Persistent Replicated Objects in a Distributed System (1993)

Author(s): Little MC, McCue DL, Shrivastava SK

    Abstract: The paper presents a general model for persistent replicated object management and identifies what meta information about objects needs to be maintained by a naming and binding service to ensure that objects named by application programs are bound to only those object replicas which are in a mutually consistent state. These ideas are developed within the framework of a distributed system in which application programs are composed of atomic actions (atomic transactions) manipulating persistent (long-lived) objects.
