This Guide to Reliable Distributed Systems describes the key concepts, principles and implementation options for creating high-assurance cloud computing solutions. In combination with the Isis2 software platform, the text offers a practical path to success in this vital emerging area. Opening with a broad technical overview, the guide then delves into the core challenges of how reliability and fault-tolerance can be abstracted, how the resulting questions can be solved, and how the solutions can be leveraged to create a wide range of practical cloud applications. Readily understandable without any special background, the guide offers concrete examples drawn from real-world settings to illustrate key insights.
Topics and features:
- Examines cloud computing reliability from the perspectives of the client and of the network, and describes the significant components of cloud data centers
- Presents a practical focus aimed at building "mission-critical" networked applications that keep working even when things go wrong
- Covers CORBA, Web Services, group communication, transactions, peer-to-peer systems, time-critical protocols, scalability and security
- Discusses fundamental mechanisms in detail, with an emphasis on the idea of "consistent behavior" in systems that replicate critical components for availability
- Reviews a wide array of major cloud computing components, including BitTorrent, Dynamo, Chubby, BigTable, Zookeeper, and others
- Includes more than 80 problems ranging from simple tests to challenging topics suitable for semester-long projects
With its well-focused approach and clarity of presentation, the guide represents a unique resource in the contemporary cloud-computing arena. Anyone seeking a solid background in distributed computing, cloud computing, or the modern Internet will find the book an essential and practical learning tool.
Über den Autor und weitere Mitwirkende
Dr. Kenneth P. Birman is an ACM Fellow and Professor of Computer Science at Cornell University. He received the 2009 IEEE Tsukomo Kanai Award for his fundamental and practical contributions to distributed computing, fault tolerance, reliability and distributed systems management, and has authored nearly 200 journal and conference papers in the area. Examples of settings in which his work has been applied include the communications infrastructure of the NYSE, the Swiss Stock Exchange, the US Navy's AEGIS warship, the French air-traffic control system, and a wide range of cutting edge cloud-computing products.

"Deep dive into algorithms" deserves explaining. The text is written in its very own style that you would not necessarily expect in a book from the Springer publishing house. Read other materials from the author and you may share my feeling of sitting in a lecture room and having a professor tell you a nice story, teaching you in an aside manner. Do not expect countless pages with of pseudo-code and mathematical proofs. Such things are kept to a minimum but you can easily look them up in the materials cited, if need be. The contrast in personal writing style is most obvious in the authors contribution to: Replication: Theory and Practice (Lecture Notes in Computer Science / Theoretical Computer Science and General Issues). It may be this very own style - which I like a lot albeit it can cause length - that may have caused the critique on the book being not a textbook but more a chronological bibliography.
The amount of bibliography is what you can expect from this kind of book (and it almost pays for the book). The way the material is presented is unique and there is a bit of everything for many kinds of readers (students, application developers, researchers) in the three parts of the book. As a developer, I was seeking for insights in modern group communication libraries (for use in the Cloud). The book delivered to me as a novice. Until today I have not found any other book that can do the same.
The book is a bit different, and I love it for being different.
