Distributed Operating Systems: Concepts and Design
Distributed Operating Systems will provide engineers, educators, and researchers with an in-depth understanding of the full range of distributed operating systems components. Each chapter addresses de-facto standards, popular technologies, and design principles applicable to a wide variety of systems. Complete with chapter summaries, end-of-chapter exercises and bibliographies, Distributed Operating Systems concludes with a set of case studies that provide real-world insights into four distributed operating systems.
