Title: Alternative implementations for storage and communication abstractions in distributed systems
Author: Aiyer, Amitanand S.
Abstract: Abstractions are widely used in building reliable distributed systems as they simplifies the task of building complex systems and aid in reasoning about them. Implementing these abstractions, however, requires making certain assumptions about the environment in which they will be used. We find that there is a mismatch in the set of assumptions used to implement abstractions in the different layers of a distributed system. This leads to a costlier design and may render the implementation unusable in situations where the assumptions do not hold. In this dissertation we provide alternative implementations for the abstractions of distributed registers and communication channels that rely on a unified set of assumptions across the different layers of a distributed system.
