Distributed virtual machines: a system architecture for network computing
Modern virtual machines, such as Java and Inferno, are emerging as network computing s. While these virtual machines provide higher-level abstractions and more sophisticated services than their predecessors from twenty years ago, their architecture has essentially remained unchanged. State of the art virtual machines are still monolithic, that is, they are comprised of closely-coupled service components, which are thus replicated over all computers in an organization. This crude replication of services forms one of the weakest points in today’s networked systems, as it creates widely acknowledged and well-publicized problems of security, manageability and performance. We have designed and implemented a new system architecture for network computing based on distributed virtual machines. In our system, virtual machine services that perform rule checking and code transformation are factored out of clients and are located in enterprisewide network servers. The services operate by interc...
