Abstract

Some of the techniques used to replicate objects for resilience in distributed operating systems are reviewed. The problems associated with the replication of objects are discussed, and a scheme of replicated actions and replicated objects, using a paradigm called PETs (parallel execution threads) is presented. The PET scheme not only utilizes the high availability of replicated objects, but also tolerates site failures that happen while an action is executing. It is shown how this scheme can be implemented in a distributed object-based system, and the Clouds operating system is used as an example testbed.
