SinfoniaEx : Fault-Tolerant Distributed Transactional Memory, April 10, 2011 Mahdi Tayarani Najaran and Charles Krasic, 4 pages

We present SinfoniaEx, a powerful paradigm for designing distributed applications. SinfoniaEx is an extension to Sinfonia, a service that provides fault-tolerant atomic access to distributed memory, and is suitable for cloud environments. SinfoniaEx is built over the same design principles of Sinfonia, while extending the interface to allow applications to share system resources, i.e. memory nodes.
