Research ivank@yahoo-inc.com Benjamin Reed osmeta, Inc. breed@osmeta.com ABSTRACT Practical systems must often guarantee that changes to the system state are durable.

When implementing such a log, if the log is only stored locally, the system state is permanently lost when the server writing the log experiences a permanent hardware failure.
