Dongarra Jack, Fox Geoffrey C., Hwang Kai - Distributed and Cloud Computing
|Distributed and Cloud Computing, named a 2012 Outstanding Academic Title by the American Library Association's Choice publication, explains how to create high-performance, scalable, reliable systems, exposing the design principles, architecture, and innovative applications of parallel, distributed, and cloud computing systems.|
Starting with an overview of modern distributed models, the book provides comprehensive coverage of distributed and cloud computing, including:
* Facilitating management, debugging, migration, and disaster recovery through virtualization * Clustered systems for research or ecommerce applications * Designing systems as web services * Social networking systems using peer-to-peer computing * Principles of cloud computing using examples from open-source and commercial applications Using examples from open-source and commercial vendors, the text describes cloud-based systems for research, e-commerce, social networking and more.
* Complete coverage of modern distributed computing technology including clusters, the grid, service-oriented architecture, massively parallel processors, peer-to-peer networking, and cloud computing * Includes case studies from the leading distributed computing vendors: Amazon, Microsoft, Google, and more * Explains how to use virtualization to facilitate management, debugging, migration, and disaster recovery * Designed for undergraduate or graduate students taking a distributed systems course—each chapter includes exercises and further reading, with lecture slides and more available online
