The Recovery-Oriented Computing project studied techniques to help systems quickly recover from inevitable failures. ROC research focuses mainly on Internet services because they can growto immense proportions, are subject to perpetual evolution, have varying workloads, and are expected to run 24/7.<p>The project has implemented two building blocks for recovery: microreboot and system-level undo. These researchers believe that most of what we have learned from Internet services can also be appliedto desktops, smaller network services, and other computing environments.</p>
