Title: Abstractions for Fault Tolerance in Distributed Systems
Authors: Schneider, Fred B.
Keywords: computer science
technical report
Issue Date: Apr-1986
Publisher: Cornell University
Abstract: Abstractions useful in fault-tolerant and distributed systems are described. The abstractions are specified as properties of protocols, hence they have a different flavor from abstractions prevalent in sequential and concurrent programming. Among the abstractions discussed are agreement, order, failure detection, and stable storage.
