A family of optimistic concurrency control protocols for real-time persistent systems with critical performance requirements and very tight deadlines is proposed.

Under assumptions that almost all transactions are extremely short and read-only and the entire database resides in main memory (which are realistic for this type of applications), we propose distributed concurrency control protocols which exploit the virtual memory management for concurrency control. Virtual memory management is required anyway, so the additional overhead is extremely low, especially for most frequent read-only transactions.

Two variations of the proposed protocol are described and compared with alternative approaches.
