ARCast - Transactional File System and Registry

Download this episode


Transactions have long been the domain of the database but what if you could transact virtually any resource in your application?  How would that change the architecture and design of the systems you are building?  Well get ready because Windows Vista includes a powerful new transaction capability for the file system, registry and virtually any kind of kernel object.  Listen as Ron gets the scoop on the new transaction features of Vista from Dana Groff.

Dana is the Program Manager in Core File Services focusing on transaction technologies.  As the PM for Transactional NTFS, the Kernel Transaction Manager, and Common Log File System he coordinated building this new kernel transaction infrastructure for Longhorn with Microsoft’s existing user-mode transaction infrastructure.  Dana is a veteran of the software industry having worked for DEC, IBM, Sybase and much smaller companies as well over 21 years in industry developing OLTP and Database middleware.
