The accessibility of vital information can be enhanced by replicating the data on several sites and employing a consistency control protocol to manage the replicas. The reliability of a replicated data object depends on maintaining a viable set of current replicas. When storage is limited, it may not be feasible to simply replicate a data object at enough sites to achieve the desired level of r
