A communication link failure can result in a network partitioning that fragments a distributed database system into isolated parts. If a severed high-speed link (e.g. satellite link) between the partitions can be replaced by a much slower backup link (e.g. a dial-up telephone line), the partitioning becomes a quasipartitioning. Two protocols for transaction processing in quasipartitioned databases are proposed. The protocols are pessimistic in that they permit transactions to be updated in exactly one partition. The first protocol is defined for a fully partition-replicated database in which every partition contains a copy of every data object. The second protocol is defined for a partially partition-replicated database in which some objects have no copies in some partitions. Both protocols improve their major performance measures linearly with the backup link speed but are not visibly affected by duration of the partitioning or the database size.<>
