Distributed Systems Université Grenoble Alpes
Review of core principles of distributed systems. Characteristics and design issues of distributed systems, briefly revisiting the basic notions on network support, naming and binding.Main concepts and terminology of fault tolerance, including replicated servers for high-availability. Peer-to-peer Distributed Systems. Both structured and unstructured P2P architectures and designs.
The objectives of this course are:
- to study the basic concepts used to design distributed algorithms: processes, failures, etc.
- to study a set of distributed algorithms that are used in modern distributed systems.
At the end of the course, the student will be familiar with a set of widely used algorithms. In particular, the following families of algorithms will be introduced: consensus algorithms, broadcast algorithms, synchronisation algorithms, etc.
Basic notions of operating systems.
Basic notions of networks.
