Description

From University Video Communications' catalog:

"Barbara Liskov explains how the THOR object-oriented database system allows programs written in different programming languages and running on different nodes of a network to share abstract persistent objects that are stored in highly reliable and available storage. She also discusses how a system like THOR can significantly simplify the job of implementing applications on the Internet."
