Distributed Operating Systems: Concepts and Practice
Doreen Galli uses her considerable academic and professional experience to bring together the worlds of theory and practice providing leading edge solutions to tomorrow's challenges. "Distributed Operating Systems: Concepts and Practice" offers a good balance of real world examples and the underlying theory of distributed computing. The flexible design makes it usable for students, practitioners and corporate training.
This book describes in detail each major aspect of distributed operating systems from a conceptual and practical viewpoint. The operating systems of Amoeba, Clouds, and Chorus(TM) (the base technology for JavaOS(TM)) are utilized as examples throughout the text; while the technologies of Windows 2000(TM), CORBA(TM), DCOM(TM), NFS, LDAP, X.500, Kerberos, RSA(TM), DES, SSH, and NTP demonstrate real life solutions. A simple client/server application is included in the appendix to demonstrate key distributed computing programming concepts. This book proves invaluable as a course text or as a reference book for those who wish to update and enhance their knowledge base. A Companion Website provides supplemental information.
