Abstract

Sixth generation operating systems are likely to be structured as immense object-oriented systems, offering integrated access to tens of thousands of nodes. The need to support highly automated self-management and to provide a high degree of fault-tolerance argues that virtually synchronous object groups could play a key role in such systems.
