Rediscovering Distributed Systems

March 23rd, 2014  |  Published in distributed systems  |  Bookmark on

As an editorial board member for Internet Computing magazine one of my duties is to occasionally write the “From the Editors” column, so for the March/April 2014 issue I contributed the article “Rediscovering Distributed Systems” (PDF). The idea behind the article is that many production systems today are distributed systems, and so more developers are taking a look back at all the distributed systems research from the past few decades so they can try to avoid reinventing the wheel. The brief article goes through a few important distributed systems papers, and also includes references to other sites and resources for learning more about distributed systems.
