Book Description

This book is about techniques for concurrency control and recovery. It covers techniques for centralized and distributed computer systems, and for single copy, multiversion, and replicated databases. These techniques were developed by researchers and system designers principally interested in transaction processing systems and database systems.

Such systems must process a relatively high volume of short transactions for data processing. Example applications include electronic funds transfer, airline reservation, and order processing. The techniques are useful for other types of applications too, such as electronic switching and computer-aided design - indeed any application that requires atomicity and reliability of concurrently executing programs that access shared data.

About the Authors
  • Philip A. Bernstein: I'm currently a Principal Researcher at Microsoft Corporation, where I've worked since 1994. I'm also an Affiliate Professor of computer science at University of Washington. Over the past 35 years, I've been a product architect at Microsoft and at Digital Equipment Corp. (gone but not forgotten), a professor at Harvard University and Wang Institute of Graduate Studies, and a VP Software at Sequoia Systems. In all of these jobs, I've focused on research and development of database management and transaction processing software. Lately, I've been working on new transaction processing technology for cloud computing. In particular, I was one of the designers of the Microsoft's SQL Azure service.
