Abstract:

"The third edition of this best-selling text incorporates the major recent developments in distributed systems technology. All chapters have been thoroughly revised and updated, with emphasis on the Internet, intranets, the Web and middleware. Other new topics include: fault modelling and fault tolerance, distributed objects and distributed multimedia systems. There is increased emphasis on algorithms and the discussion of security has been brought forward in the text and integrated with other related technologies. Unlike the previous editions, prior knowledge of UNIX is not required to follow the text." "As with previous editions, this book is intended to provide knowledge of the principles and practice of distributed system design. Information is conveyed in sufficient depth to allow readers to evaluate existing systems or design new ones."--Jacket.
