|Title: ||Primary-Backup Protocols: Lower Bounds and Optimal Implementations|
|Authors: ||Budhiraja, Navin|
Schneider, Fred B.
|Keywords: ||computer science|
|Issue Date: ||Jan-1992|
|Publisher: ||Cornell University|
|Abstract: ||We present a formal specification of primary-backup. We then prove lower bounds on the degree of replication, failover time and worst-case response time to client requests assuming different failure models. Finally, we outline primary-backup protocols and indicate which of our lower bounds are tight. Keywords: Fault-tolerance, reliability, availability, primary-backup, lower bounds, optimal protocols.|
