Distributed systems: principles and paradigms
The authoritative introduction to the principles of distributed systems.
-- By legendary networking and operating systems expert Andrew S. Tanenbaum.
-- Easy to follow: organized around seven key principles of distributed systems.
-- Includes extensive real-world examples.
Today, virtually every computing system is part of a distributed system, or soon will be. Programmers, developers, and engineers need to understand the principles and paradigms underlying distributed systems -- and the real-world application of these principles. Now, Andrew S. Tanenbaum -- one of the world's most well-respected experts on networking and operating systems -- presents a complete introduction to distributed principles and paradigms. Joined by colleague Martin van Steen, Tanenbaum identifies the seven key principles of distributed systems, and presents extensive examples of each. Distributed Systems: Principles and Paradigms presents in-depth coverage of every key aspect of distributed systems: communications, processes, naming, synchronization, consistency and replication, fault tolerance, and security. Each principle is introduced in its own chapter; subsequent chapters demonstrate real-world implementations of these principles in object-based systems, document-based systems, file-based systems, and coordination-based systems. Since each case study is organized around the authors' seven key principles, readers will find it exceptionally easy to compare the systems under consideration.
