There are many issues that affect modeling and designing real-time databases. One of those issues is maintaining consistency between the actual state of the real-time object of the external environment and its images as reflected by all its replicas distributed over multiple nodes. The need to improve the scalability is another important issue. In this paper, the authors present a general framework to design a replicated real-time database for small to medium scale systems and maintain all timing constrains.
