This paper will use the latest research within the extended transaction models and replication methods to illustrate how to design distributed enterprise resource planning (ERP) software with high performance and availability. In a distributed ERP system, an e-commerce server is an ordinary sales location with or without its own stock, and, therefore, the e-commerce system is totally integrated in the ERP system. The author has cooperated with one of the major ERP software companies in analyzing how the company can design such a distributed version of their ERP system.

This paper will use different replication designs to improve performance and response time by substituting remote data accesses with local data accesses. The availability of the system can be increased by using a remote replicated database in case a local failure/disaster occurs. The major disadvantages of data replication are the additional costs of updating replicated data and the problems related to managing the consistency of
