dc.description.abstract This paper presents a scheme using the virtual machine concept for creating: 1) An environment for increasing the effectiveness of researchers who must use analytical, modeling systems and have complex data management needs; 2) A mechanism for multi-user coordination of access and update to a central data base; 3) A mechanism for creating an environment where several different modeling facilities can access the same data base; 4) A mechanism for creating an environment where several different and potentially incompatible data management systems can all be accessed by the same user models or facilities. en_US
dc.description.abstract The paper investigates and formalizes the performance implications of this scheme specifically directed at the question of response time degradation as a function of number of virtual machines, of locked time of the data base machine, and of query rate of the modeling machine. en_US
