Psync is an IPC protocol that explicitly preserves the partial order of messages exchanged among a set of processes. A description is given of how Psync can be used to implement replicated objects in the presence of network and host failures. Unlike conventional algorithms that depend on an underlying mechanism that totally orders messages for implementing replicated objects, the authors' approach exploits the partial order provided by Psync to achieve additional concurrency.
