Reliable distributed systems

Individual course

Distributed computing systems have emerged to play a serious role in industry and society. Therefore, reliability of distributed systems has become an important issue. This course aims at giving an overview of reliable distributed systems and their components with a focus on cloud computing. We will look at possible failures in distributed systems and how to avoid them. Examples of applications of reliability techniques will be given.

After the end of the course the students should be familiar with distributed systems and cloud computing. The student should also be able to identify different failures in distributed systems and to describe reliability techniques to avoid these failures.

It is possible to complete this course online with the course materials and do the course exam in any of the FITech universities.
