Exploiting Virtual Synchrony in Distributed Systems

  title={Exploiting Virtual Synchrony in Distributed Systems},

We describe applications of a virtually synchronous environment for distributed programming, which underlies a collection of distributed programming tools in the ISIS2 system. A virtually synchronous environment allows processes to be structured into process groups, and makes events like broadcasts to the group as an entity, group membership changes, and even migration of an activity from one place to another appear to occur instantaneously — in other words, synchronously.
