A Practical Approach for ?Zero? Downtime in an Operational Information System
An Operational Information System (OIS) supports a real-time view of an organization’s information critical to its logistical business operations. A central component of an OIS is an engine that integrates data events captured from distributed, remote sources in order to derive meaningful real-time views of current operations. This Event Derivation Engine (EDE) continuously updates these views and also publishes them to a potentially large number of remote subscribers. The paper first describes a sample OIS and EDE in the context of an airline’s operations. It then defines the performance and availability requirements to be met by this system, specifically focusing on the EDE component. One particular requirement for the EDE is that subscribers to its output events should not experience downtime due to EDE failures, crashes or increased processing loads. Toward this end, we develop and evaluate a practical technique for masking failures and for hiding the costs of recovery from...
