Book Description

This book covers the principles, advanced concepts, and technologies of distributed systems in detail, including: communication, replication, fault tolerance, and security.

Intended for use in a senior/graduate level distributed systems course or by professionals, this text systematically shows how distributed systems are designed and implemented in real systems.

For this third edition of "Distributed Systems," the material has been thoroughly revised and extended, integrating principles and paradigms into nine chapters: 1. Introduction 2. Architectures 3. Processes 4. Communication 5. Naming 6. Coordination 7. Replication 8. Fault tolerance 9. Security.

A separation has been made between basic material and more specific subjects. The latter have been organized into boxed sections, which may be skipped on first reading.

To assist in understanding the more algorithmic parts, example programs in Python have been included. The examples in the book leave out many details for readability, but the complete code is available through the book's Website, hosted at A personalized digital copy of the book is available for free, as well as a printed version through
