The Inter-group Router Approach to Scalable Group Composition

  title={The Inter-group Router Approach to Scalable Group Composition},
  author={Scott Iekel-Johnson and Farnam Jahanian and Jigney Shah},
This paper examines the problem of building scalable, fault-tolerant distributed systems from collections of communicating process groups, while maintaining well-defined end-to-end delivery semantics. We propose a new architecture which supports modular group composition by providing a distinction between intra-group and inter-group communication. With this architecture, multiple group communication protocols and end-to-end delivery semantics can be used in a single system. These features… CONTINUE READING
