Description

Explores the fundamental principles and practice underlying networked information systems. We first cover basic distributed computing mechanisms (e.g., naming, replication, fault tolerance, security) and enabling middleware technologies. We then discuss how these mechanisms and technologies fit together to realize distributed databases and file systems, web-based and mobile information systems. Prerequisite: CSCI 0300, CSCI 0320, CSCI 0330, CSCI 1310 or CSCI 1330.
