50 Years of Isolation
Goonasekera, Nuwan A., Caelli, William J., & Sahama, Tony R. (2009) 50 Years of Isolation. In IEEE Computer Society, IEEE Computer Society Conference Publishing Services (CPS), Brisbane, Australia, pp. 54-60.
The traditional means for isolating applications from each other is via the use of operating system provided “process” abstraction facilities. However, as applications now consist of multiple fine-grained components, the traditional process abstraction model is proving to be insufficient in ensuring this isolation. Statistics indicate that a high percentage of software failure occurs due to propagation of component failures. These observations are further bolstered by the attempts by modern Internet browser application developers, for example, to adopt multi-process architectures in order to increase robustness. Therefore, a fresh look at the available options for isolating program components is necessary and this paper provides an overview of previous and current research on the area.
