Restart Services for Highly Available Systems

This paper proposes a design methodology for building highly available systems. In addition, we describe a set of operating system services that can be used to achieve this goal. The techniques described are intended for a parallel environment and can be generalized for any distributed system. We describe a methodology for providing basic services for high availability, specifice services for restart and an implementation of these services.
