This paper describes abstractions that have been designed to support distributed programming in the object oriented programming language BETA. The approach is minimalistic in the sense that a goal is to provide the essential building blocks on top of which other distribution related abstractions may be built. This goal is made easier by demanding for type orthogonal persistence and distribution as the full power of the underlying language may then be used when building higher level abstractions on top of the basic ones.
