This paper describes an enhanced replica synchronization mechanism built in Microsoft's WinFS replica management system. The system reconciles autonomously-operating replicas in a completely peer-to-peer manner, without employing a central master or locking. The main challenge is for two replicas to exchange meta-information efficiently about (potentially numerous) data objects in order to discover what updates they are missing, and detect conflicts. The paper introduces a novel bundling… CONTINUE READING
