<p><b>Abstract</b>—Due to recent developments in network technologies, broader channel bandwidth is becoming prevalent in worldwide networks. As one of the new technologies making good use of such broadband channels, dynamic relocation of databases through networks, which we call <it>database migration</it>, will soon be used in practice as a powerful and basic database operation. We propose two transaction processing methods to take advantage of database migration in broadband networks. These methods choose the most efficient transaction processing method between the conventional method, based on the two-phase commit protocol, and our method, using database migration. We also propose a concurrency control mechanism and a recovery mechanism for our proposed methods. Simulation results are presented comparing the performance of our proposed methods and the conventional transaction processing method based on the two-phase commit protocol. The results demonstrate that the effective use of database migration produces better performance than the conventional method.</p>
