Abstract
Group communication systems are proven tools upon
which to build fault-tolerant systems. As the demands for
fault-tolerance increase and more applications require reli-
able distributed computing over wide area networks, wide
area group communication systems are becoming very use-
ful. However, building a wide area group communication
system is a challenge. This paper presents the design of
the transport protocols of the Spread wide area group com-
munication system. We focus on two aspects of the system.
First, the value of using overlay networks for application
level group communication services. Second, the require-
