Fault Tolerant Parallel and Distributed Systems

The focus of this book is to present recent techniques and methods for im plementing fault-tolerant parallel and distributed computing systems.

Fault Tolerant Parallel and Distributed Systems

The most important use of computing in the future will be in the context of the global "digital convergence" where everything becomes digital and every thing is inter-networked. The application will be dominated by storage, search, retrieval, analysis, exchange and updating of information in a wide variety of forms. Heavy demands will be placed on systems by many simultaneous re quests. And, fundamentally, all this shall be delivered at much higher levels of dependability, integrity and security. Increasingly, large parallel computing systems and networks are providing unique challenges to industry and academia in dependable computing, espe cially because of the higher failure rates intrinsic to these systems. The chal lenge in the last part of this decade is to build a systems that is both inexpensive and highly available. A machine cluster built of commodity hardware parts, with each node run ning an OS instance and a set of applications extended to be fault resilient can satisfy the new stringent high-availability requirements. The focus of this book is to present recent techniques and methods for im plementing fault-tolerant parallel and distributed computing systems. Section I, Fault-Tolerant Protocols, considers basic techniques for achieving fault-tolerance in communication protocols for distributed systems, including synchronous and asynchronous group communication, static total causal order ing protocols, and fail-aware datagram service that supports communications by time.

Parallel And Distributed Computing

This book is an introduction to the complex and emerging world of the Parallel and Distributed Computing. It helps you understand the principles and acquire the practical skills of MPI programming using the C/FORTAN programming language. My aim is for you to gain sufficient knowledge and experience to perform simple useful programming tasks using the best up-to-date techniques and so I hope for it to be the easiest book from which you can learn the basics of MPI programming. It helps you understand the principles, algorithm & implementation of Parallel and Distributed Computing. This book is emphatically focused on the concept. Understanding the fundamental ideas, principles, and techniques is the essence of a good programmer. Only well-designed code has a chance of becoming part of a correct, reliable, and maintainable parallel and distributed system. Through this book, I hope that you will see the absolute necessity of understanding Parallel and Distributed Computing. I have taken a top-down approach, addressing the issues to be resolved in the design of distributed systems and describing successful approaches in the form of abstract models, algorithms and detailed case studies of widely used systems. The book aims to provide an understanding of the principles on which the parallel and distributed computing are based; their architecture, algorithms and design; and how it meets the demands of contemporary parallel and distributed applications. I began with a set of several chapters that together cover the building blocks for a study of parallel and distributed systems. The first few chapters provide a conceptual overview of the subject, outlining the characteristics of parallel and distributed systems and the challenges that must be addressed in their design: scalability, heterogeneity, security and failure handling being the most significant. These chapters also develop abstract models for understanding process interaction, failure and security. Simply In Depth....
