Excerpt: Yoav Raz (Hebrew: ?, born 1947, Haifa, Israel) is a computer scientist. He has worked primarily in the area of Information technology, and conducted research mainly in Data management (Databases in particular). He was Chief Scientist at EMC Corporation (1994-2003). Yoav Raz is the inventor of Commitment ordering (Commit ordering; CO; in 1990), a new class of interoperable concurrency control (Serializability) techniques. The CO techniques have elegantly solved a years old practical fundamental open problem in concurrency control of database management systems: The Global serializability problem. A solution means effectively guaranteeing Global serializability in a heterogeneous environment with multiple database management systems (and other transactional objects, e.g., of Systems management and within networks of smartphones) that may employ (each) different (any) concurrency control methods and be highly distributed. This problem has been considered unsolvable by many researchers (see Quotations in Global serializability). Serializability is essential for the correctness of transactional applicati...
