Support for Distributed Transactions in the TABS Prototype

View publication


The TABS prototype is an experimental facility that pro- vides operating system-level support for distributed transactions that operate on shared abstract types. The facility is designed to simplify the construction of highly available and reliable distributed applications. This paper describes the TABS system model, the TABS prototype's structure, and certain aspects of its operation. The paper concludes with a discussion of the status of the project and a preliminary evaluation. © 1985 IEEE
