Back-to-Basics Weekend Reading - Principles of Transaction-Oriented Database Recovery
I have been reading mainly newer papers in the beginning of this year, but it is time to get back to the basics and start reading some more historical papers again. From the time when researchers and engineers where laying the foundations for our current systems. A good early paper to start again is the Survey that Härder en Reuter did on Database Recovery in 1983.
