Some times, the authors did indeed explain some concepts with examples. DPReview Digital Photography. On the other hand, sometimes this leaves you wishing for a little more on certain topics. J computer communications. Read more Read less. From mobile phones to the Internet, our lives depend increasingly on distributed systems linking computers and other devices together in a seamless and transparent way.
The authors go into deep detail on all aspects of distributed systems, outline case studies Bit Torrent and Google among them , provide ample references the references alone make this a useful book - I'd go so far as to say if you're not reading any of the referenced papers, you're not using this book properly and you might not be in the correct field of study , and lay out very interesting exercises. In a nutshell, if you're serious about distributed systems and consider yourself a professional, this is a worthy addition to your library.
Good book, but did not got chance to read completely. One of the best books for studying Distributed Systems. One person found this helpful.
Covers algorithms in real code examples - good reference material.
If you use java this is a great book to read. With all the applications out there being slowly converted from sad monoliths into fast distributed microservices, the interest in distributed systems has obviously skyrocketed. I am not sure if it's because it's huge or because it's the fifth edition suggesting the previous four were successful , but among the many titles available this felt like the one to start with.
It is not. The book is divided into parts seven by heart and a nice schema shows us how we can move in case we are only interested in a particular area say security.
Next to these we find, instead, that the authors dive deeply into unnecessary details, such as the UDP protocol. Let's face it.
Distributed systems should be the next step. Those concepts should be taken for granted.
Again, do we really need to be explained the difference between little endian and big endian here? The book is well written, no doubts about this.
But it fails to deliver real value to anyone interested in distributed systems. I was honestly expecting real life scenarios, discussions about highly-availability, scaling, how to deal with failures, security, just to mention some.
None of this is given to the readers. A big disappointment. Knowledge should be easily accesible. Limited reader licence!

The first two chapters provide a conceptual overview of the subject, outlining the characteristics of distributed systems and the challenges that must be addressed in their design: These chapters also develop abstract models for understanding process interaction, failure and security. They are followed by other foundational chapters devoted to the study of networking, interprocess communication, remote invocation, indirect communication and operating system support.
The next set of chapters covers the important topic of middleware, examining different approaches to supporting distributed applications including distributed objects and components, web services and alternative peer-to-peer solutions.
We then cover the well-established topics of security, distributed file systems and distributed naming before moving on to important data-related aspects including distributed transactions and data replication. Algorithms associated with all these topics are covered as they arise and also in separate chapters devoted to timing, coordination and agreement.
The book culminates in chapters that address the emerging areas of mobile and ubiquitous computing and distributed multimedia systems before presenting a substantial case study focusing on the design and implementation of the distributed systems infrastructure that supports Google, both in terms of core search functionality and the increasing range of additional services offered by Google for example, Gmail and Google Earth.
Distributed systems is now a large subject area, and inevitably there are many omissions in the book. The authors are obviously aware of this, and have focused on particular areas of distributed systems, emphasising remote procedure call-style interactions and issues relating to the design of distributed file systems.
This is a fairly safe choice of material, with all the issues covered being at the heart of distributed system design. If a tradition existed for distributed system books, then this would be it! There are, however, several interesting 'fringe' subjects which might have merited a mention in the book, e.
There are also several surprising omissions, particularly the fact that naming does not merit a chapter although there is a case study of the Grapevine naming system. Similarly, there is little mention of the very serious problems of heterogeneity and scaleability.
Personally, I would also have liked to see more alternative models of distributed computing such as the co-operating servers approach in Saguaro, or the unusual design of the Timewarp distributed system -- this would add to the book's entertainment value.
The applications end of distributed systems is also very important for system designers, and yet this topic is largely ignored.
Even so, the authors have identified their market and have tailored the book accordingly. The end result is a good, solid textbook on distributed systems which I look forward to using in future courses. The book is also good value for a hardback, although a cheaper version for students might be appreciated in a few quarters.
A general survey and technical papers are presented on: This book covers most of the field of data communications but in very little detail.
