Abstract

Due to severe performance penalties associated with synchronous replication, there is a significant interest in asynchronous replica management protocols. Lazy protocols currently in use either do not guarantee consistency and serializability as needed by transactional semantics or they impose restrictions on placement of data and which data object can be updated. In this paper we consider an alternative update protocol based on epidemic communication that guarantees consistency and serializability in spite of a write-anywhere capability.
