Distributed fault tolerant controllers

Mostarda, Leonardo, Ball, Rudi and Dulay, Naranker (2010) Distributed fault tolerant controllers. Lecture Notes in Computer Science, 6115 . pp. 141-154. ISSN 0302-9743 [Article] (doi:10.1007/978-3-642-13645-0_11)


Distributed applications are often built from sets of distributed components that must be co-ordinated in order to
achieve some global behaviour. The common approach is to
use a centralised controller for co-ordination, or occasionally a set of distributed entities. Centralised co-ordination is simpler but introduces a single point of failure and poses problems of scalability. Distributed co-ordination offers greater scalability, reliability and applicability but is harder to reason about and requires more complex algorithms for synchronisation and consensus among components.
In this paper we present a system called GOANNA that
from a state machine specification (FSM) of the global behaviour of interacting components can automatically generate a correct, scalable and fault tolerant distributed implementation. GOANNA can be used as a backend for different tools as well as an implementation platform in its own right.
