Title: Methods For Distributing A B+ Tree in a Loosely Coupled Environment
Authors: G. Matsliach and O. Shmueli
Abstract: We consider the problem of maintaining a data file which must be distributed among disks, each controlled by a processor and residing in a different site. The pairs, of disks and processors, are connected via a local broadcast network. A simple and practical method for maintaining such a file is presented and analyzed.

Keywords: Distributed data structures, B+·trees, loosely coupled environments.
