Abstract

A so-called single system image (SSI) allows threads in a distributed shared memory (DSM) system to access data and other resources in a location transparent manner. In this brief announcement, we present our ongoing research towards fault-tolerant algorithms that locate objects in such systems. In particular, we build our algorithms on a multi-version, object-based software transactional memory (STM) system, in which objects form a sequence of immutable object versions. Our algorithms are fully decentralized and allow resources to be added and removed at run-time without disturbing the application.
