Title: Maintaining Availability in Partitioned Replicated Databases
Authors: El Abbadi, Amr

Keywords: computer science

Issue Date: Aug-1987
Publisher: Cornell University
Abstract: In a replicated database, a data item may have copies residing on several sites. A replica control protocol is necessary to ensure that data items with several copies behave as if they consist of a single copy, as far as users can tell. We describe a new replica control protocol that allows the accessing of data in spite of site failures and network partitioning. This protocol provides the database designer with a large degree of flexibility in deciding the degree of data availability, as well as the cost of accessing data.
