VAXcluster: a closely-coupled distributed system

Nancy P. Kronenberg, Henry M. Levy, William D. Strecker
1986 ACM Transactions on Computer Systems  
A VAXcluster is a highly available and extensible configuration of VAX computers that operate as a single system.  ...  The software is a distributed version of the VAX/VMS operating system that uses a distributed lock manager to synchronize access to shared resources.  ...  ACKNOWLEDGMENTS VAXclusters are the result of work done by many individuals in several engineering groups at Digital Equipment Corporation.  ...

High-performance network and channel-based storage

R.H. Katz
1992 Proceedings of the IEEE  
In the traditional mainframe-centered view of a computer system, storage devices are coupled to the system through complex hardware subsystems called I/O channels.  ...  A highly tuned remote file system on a 10 megabit (Mbit) per second Ethernet can provide perhaps 500K bytes per second to remote client applications.  ...  The VAXCluster is a collection of hardware and software services that closely couple together VAX computers and Hierarchical Storage Controllers (HSCs).  ...

A Model for Space-Correlated Failures in Large-Scale Distributed Systems [chapter]

Matthieu Gallet, Nezih Yigitbasi, Bahman Javadi, Derrick Kondo, Alexandru Iosup, Dick Epema
2010 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
Moreover, perhaps as a result of system complexity, in distributed systems a single failure can trigger within a short time span several more failures, forming a group of time-correlated failures.  ...  For each of these seven systems, we provide a set of model parameters that can be used in research studies or for tuning distributed systems.  ...  The validation uses failure traces taken from fifteen diverse distributed systems; 4. We validate our model using real failure traces, and present for them the extracted model parameters (Section 5).  ...

DataMesh, house-building, and distributed systems technology

John Wilkes
1992 Proceedings of the 5th workshop on ACM SIGOPS European workshop Models and paradigms for distributed systems structuring - EW 5  
System design reconsidered as architecture The past several years have shown a steady increase in knowledge about building (distributed) computer systems.  ...  Consider the analogy of a distributed computer system as an ensemble of buildings. Rooms might represent address spaces; their occupants, threads; buildings the nodes of the distributed system.  ...  The former is a result of our desires to design a system capable of scaling up to a couple of hundred disk drives.  ...
