The difficulty of developing reliable distributed software is an impediment to applying distributed computing technology in many settings. Experience with the ISIS system suggests that a structured approach based on virtually synchronous process groups yields systems that are substantially easier to develop, exploit sophisticated forms of cooperative computation and achieve high reliability. This paper reviews six years of on ISIS, describing the model, its implementation challenges, and the types of applications to which ISIS has been applied.
