Isolation

Concurrent execution is essential for performance.

Frequent, slow disk accesses

don’t waste CPU – keep running

Interleaving actions of different user programs

can lead to inconsistency:

e.g., two programs simultaneously withdraw from the same account

DBMS ensures such problems don’t arise:

users can pretend they are using a single-user system.
