Typically Multi-User Object-Oriented Environments (MOOs) are implemented using a client-server architecture, where a centralized server maintains the MOO state. Such architecture may limit the scalability of the MOO. This paper discusses the role of object migration and replication in the implementation of scalable MOOs.
