Several concepts and problems in the integration of a database management system (DBMS) into a general purpose operating system are investigated. In particular, isolation and access control, theExpand
Performance analysis of several back-end database architectures
Six different variants of an existing relational database system were constructed to test the most interesting functional subdivisions and various conclusions were reached about the viability of the configurations, the desirable properties of the communications mechanisms to he used, the operating system interface and overhead, and the performance of the database system. Expand
A history and evaluation of System R
The three principal phases of the System R project are described and some of the lessons learned from System R about the design of relational systems and database systems in general are discussed. Expand
The Recovery Manager of the System R Database Manager
The recovery subsystem of an experimental data management system is described and evaluated and the DO-UNDO-REDO protocol allows new recoverable types and operations to be added to the recovery system. Expand

The recovery manager of a data management system
The recovery subsystem of System R, an experimental data management system, describes and evaluates the transaction concept which allows application programs to commit and the DO-UNDO-REDO protocol allows new recoverable types and operations to be added to the recovery system. Expand
Virtual Control Storage - Security Measures in VM/370
An experimental extension to VM/370 is described whereby a distinct execution and data domain (Virtual Control Storage) is made available to virtual machines that require access to a resource manager, without requiring a change in the scheduling unit. Expand
Virtual Machine Communication for the Implementation of Decision Support Systems
This paper presents the use of the virtual machine concept as a software engineering tool, and presents the application of these tools along with the software techniques used to implement them, and quantifies some of their costs and benefits. Expand
Databsse system approach the management decision support
Current work in decision support systems and an approach which has been made to meet many of these computational needs through the development and implementation of a computational facility, the Generalized Management Information System (GMIS). Expand
