10,095,730 - Apparatus for ensuring real-time transaction integrity in the indestructible scalable computing cloud


An apparatus is provided to verify the computational results of a transaction processing system utilizing a parent node and a plurality of child nodes in a high-availability and scalable fashion. A transaction is executed in an identical manner in two or more participating child nodes, and the transaction is allowed to modify an application's state (e.g., commit) only if the validity of the result of the processing of the transaction is verified across the majority of the participating child nodes. Otherwise, the transaction is aborted. The child nodes may exist within a cloud provider or across multiple cloud providers.
