Key principles in the distributed systems arena are presented including: communication, processes, naming, synchronization, consistency and replication, and fault tolerance. In addition, different paradigms are outlined including object-based systems, distributed file systems, and document-based systems. A practical component of the course will allow students to experiment with a simple distributed system including modification of some of its components.
