Design of POMP — a Persistent Object Management Processor
Pomp is a single board persistent object management processor designed to fit into a Sun Computer. When attached to a SUN Vme Bus computer it will allow that machine to create and manipulate a graph of persistent objects. These objects will exist over the lifetime of the hardware, and beyond that provided that other machines capable of reading the archive media exist
Although the design is for a SUN computer, with minor modifications similar machines could be fitted to the buses of other computers.
