Replication Techniques in Distributed Systems organizes and surveys the spectrum of replication prools and systems that achieve high availability by replicating entities in failure-prone distributed computing environments. The entities discussed in this book vary from passive untyped data objects, to typed and complex objects, to processes and messages.
Replication Techniques in Distributed Systems contains definitions and introductory material suitable for a beginner, theoretical foundations and algorithms, an annotated bibliography of commercial and experimental prototype systems, as well as short guides to recommended further readings in specialized subtopics.
This book can be used as recommended or required reading in graduate courses in academia, as well as a handbook for designers and implementors of systems that must deal with replication issues in distributed systems.

Editorial Reviews

Surveys replication protocols and systems that work by replicating entities in failure-prone distributed computing environments, covering theoretical foundations and algorithms and entities including passive untyped data objects, typed and complex objects, and processes and messages. Includes five annotated bibliographies focusing on basic data replication, object and message replication, mobile and heterogeneous computing, replication for availability, and example systems. Useful as a text for graduate courses, and as a handbook for those designing and implementing distributed systems. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
From the Publisher
