Distributed Systems, 3rd Edition (Maarten van Steen, et al.)

The fundamentals, cutting-edge ideas, and technologies of distributed systems, such as communication, replication, fault tolerance, and security, are covered in detail in this book.

This text systematically demonstrates how distributed systems are planned and implemented in actual systems. It is meant to be used in a senior/graduate level distributed systems course or by experts.

The material has been extensively rewritten and expanded for this third edition of "Distributed Systems," incorporating ideas and paradigms into nine chapters: Initialization, Architectures, and Processes 4. Talking. 5. Naming. 6. Coordinating Replication 7. 8. Tolerance for faults 9. Security

Basic information and more specialized topics have been divided. These have been arranged into boxed chunks so that they may be quickly skimmed.

Python example programs have been supplied to help with the comprehension of the more algorithmic components. For readability, the examples in the book omit a lot of information, however, the website for the book, distributed-systems.net, hosts the whole code. Both a printed copy and a customized digital edition of the book are freely available on Amazon.com.
