Collections of hardware components are the foundation of computation and consist of interconnections of different types of the same core elements: processors, disks, memory cards, I/O devices, and network links. Designing a system for managing collections of hardware is challenging because modern infrastructures (i) distribute resource control across multiple autonomous sites, (ii) operate diverse sets of hardware, and (iii) support a variety of programming models for developing and executing software services.Failure recovery for guests and resources requires guest-specific and resource- specific detection, diagnosis, and repair policies. ... For example, guests that coordinate emergency services, such as Internet 911, must ensure sustained operation in the presence of network failures. ... With respect to actor failures, the goal of a networked operating system is to simply make forward progress, despite anbsp;...
