Telematics Research at Princeton - 1987
In this note we briefly summarize the database and distributed computing research we performed in the year 1987. In general terms, our emphasis was on studying and implementing mechanisms for efficient and reliable computing and data management. Our work can be roughly divided into 9 categories: the
implementation of a high availability database system, real time database systems, multicast protocols, distributed file comparison, altruistic locking, information exchange networks, data caching in information systems, process migration, and load balancing. Due to space limitations, we concentrate on
describing our own work and we do not survey the work of other researchers in the field. For survey information and references, we refer readers to some of our reports.
