- Wiley 2013; US$ 70.00
Software patterns have revolutionized the way developer’s and architects think about how software is designed, built and documented. This new title in Wiley’s prestigious Series in Software Design Patterns presents proven techniques to achieve patterns for fault tolerant software. This is a key reference for experts seeking to select... more...
Specification and Analytical Evaluation of Heterogeneous Dynamic Quorum-Based Data Replication SchemesVieweg+Teubner Verlag 2012; US$ 109.00
Data replication by employing quorum systems is an important concept to improve operation availability on data objects in distributed systems that have strong data consistency demands. These data replication schemes must be modeled and carefully evaluated with respect to different quality measures. Christian Storm addresses the former by a uniform... more...

Fundamentals of Dependable Computing for Software Engineers presents the essential elements of computer system dependability. The book describes a comprehensive dependability-engineering process and explains the roles of software and software engineers in computer system dependability. Readers will learn: Why dependability matters What it... more...

Despite means of fault prevention such as extensive testing or formal veri?cation, errors inevitably occur during system operation. To avoid subsequent system fa- ures, critical distributed systems, therefore, require engineering of means for fault tolerance. Achieving fault tolerance requires some redundancy, which, unfor- nately, is bound to limitations.... more...
- Elsevier Science 2010; US$ 85.95
There are many applications in which the reliability of the overall system must be far higher than the reliability of its individual components. In such cases, designers devise mechanisms and architectures that allow the system to either completely mask the effects of a component failure or recover from it so quickly that the application is not seriously... more...

Real-time computer systems are very often subject to dependability requirements because of their application areas. Fly-by-wire airplane control systems, control of power plants, industrial process control systems and others are required to continue their function despite faults. Fault-tolerance and real-time requirements thus constitute a kind... more...

In architecting dependable systems, what is required to improve the overall system robustness is fault tolerance. Many methods have been proposed to this end, the solutions are usually considered late during the design and implementation phases of the software life-cycle (e.g., Java and Windows NT exception handling), thus reducing the effectiveness... more...

Software-Implemented Hardware Fault Tolerance addresses the innovative topic of software-implemented hardware fault tolerance (SIHFT), i.e., how to deal with faults affecting the hardware by only (or mainly) acting on the software. The first SIHFT techniques were proposed and adopted several decades ago, but they have been the object of new interest... more...
