Distributed and Cloud Computing: From Parallel Processing to the Internet of Things offers complete coverage of modern distributed computing technology including clusters, the grid, service-oriented architecture, massively parallel processors, peer-to-peer networking, and cloud computing. It is the first modern, up-to-date distributed systems textbook; it explains how to create high-performance, scalable, reliable systems, exposing the design principles, architecture, and innovative applications of parallel, distributed, and cloud computing systems.

Topics covered by this book include: facilitating management, debugging, migration, and disaster recovery through virtualization; clustered systems for research or ecommerce applications; designing systems as web services; and social networking systems using peer-to-peer computing. The principles of cloud computing are discussed using examples from open-source and commercial applications, along with case studies from the leading distributed computing vendors such as Amazon, Microsoft, and Google. Each chapter includes exercises and further reading, with lecture slides and more available online.

This book will be ideal for students taking a distributed systems or distributed computing class, as well as for professional system designers and engineers looking for a reference to the latest distributed technologies including cloud, P2P and grid computing.

Distributed and Cloud Computing

From Parallel Processing to the Internet of Things

Kai Hwang, Geoffrey C. Fox, Jack Dongarra

Distributed and Cloud Computing is a comprehensive and up-to-date textbook that covers the convergence of high performance computing, distributed and cloud computing, virtualization, and grid computing. The authors integrate an awareness of application and technology trends that are shaping the future of computing. The book is an excellent resource for students as well as seasoned practitioners.

–Thomas J. Hacker, Associate Professor, Purdue University

With double-digit growth predicted in industry, today's students need to learn cloud computing to successfully enter the workforce. Distributed and Cloud Computing brings the principles of cloud computing to distributed systems courses. Starting with an overview of modern distributed models, the book exposes the design principles, systems architecture, and innovative applications of parallel, distributed, and cloud computing systems. It teaches how to create high-performance, scalable, reliable systems for research, e-commerce, social networking, supercomputing, and more, with examples from open-course and commercial applications.
