Goel, S, Sharda, H and Taniar, D 2004, 'Failure recovery in grid database systems', in G. Goos and J. Hartmanis (ed.) IWDC International Workshop on Distributed Computing, Kolkata, India, 7 December 2004.
Failure is unavoidable in any computing environment and hence any computing architecture must address recovery issues. Recovery becomes more complicated when sites are distributed, autonomous and heterogeneous. Grid architecture is such an evolving distributed architecture. Databases operating in Grid architecture have different recovery issues than their other distributed counterparts - distributed and multidatabase. In this paper we focus on maintaining correctness of data in case of site failure in Grid database.
