Experience with transactions in QuickSilver

Frank Schmuck, Jim Wylie
1991 ACM SIGOPS Operating Systems Review  
Our experience with building and using transactional programs over several years has been mostly positive.  ...  Our experience with QuickSilver has shown that all of these properties are useful in a general-purpose system as well; they aid synchronizing access to shared data and help maintain consistency  ...

Recovery management in QuickSilver

R. Haskin, Y. Malachi, W. Sawdon, G. Chan
1987 ACM SIGOPS Operating Systems Review  
Rather than bundling transaction management into a dedicated language or recoverable object manager, Quicksilver exposes the basic commit protocol and log recovery primitives, allowing clients and servers  ...  Transactions allow failure atomicity for related activities at a single server or at a number of independent servers.  ...  ACKNOWLEDGMENTS We would like to thank Jim Wyllie and Luis-Felipe Cabrera, whose work on the architecture and implementation of the Quicksilver Distributed File Services has helped to drive the design  ...
