Distributed shared memory (DSM) is an accepted paradigma for interprocess communication in loosely coupled distributed systems. Distributed object memory (DOM) is an abstraction of DSM which provides sharing of language-level objects. DOM systems which tolerate faults are highly necessary. In this paper, we present different fault-tolerant protocols, each adequately designed for a different class of objects. Fault tolerance is mainly achieved by already-existing object copies that are spread throughout the DOM system, rather than by saving copies to stable storage. We show how DOM systems can easily be extended by type-specific protocols to efficiently guarantee fault tolerance
