Synopsis:

Students are introduced to methods for coordination of processes in distributed environment characterised by nondeterministic time responses of computing processes and communication channels. They learn basic algorithms that assure correctness of computations realized by a group of loosely coupled processes and mechanisms that support high availability of both data and services, and safety in case of failures.

Requirements:

Basic knowledge in the area of operating systems, computer networks and communication.

Syllabus of lectures:

1. Distribuované aplikace, metody komunikace

2. Procedurální komunikace - XML-RPC, CORBA, Java RMI, SOAP/RESTful

3. Model distribuovaného výpočtu, jednoduché příklady

4. Snímek distribuovaného výpočtu, logický čas

5. Vlnový algoritmus, symetrie výpočtu - výběr serveru

6. Algoritmy výlučného přístupu

7. Uváznutí, predikce a detekce při výpočtu a při komunikaci

8. Ukončení distribuované aplikace, kvóra

9. Sdílení a replikace dat, distribuované databáze

10. P2P systémy a DHT technologie

11. Agentské aplikace, mobilita výpočtu

12. Architektury cloud technologií, metody výpočtu

Syllabus of tutorials:

1. Practices introduction

2. Java RMI

3. XML-RPC

4. SOAP

5. CORBA

6. Semestral project presentation

Study Objective:

The module focuses on the distributed computation viewed as an asynchronous cooperation of a group of finite state machines. Substantial part of the lectures is devoted to typical distributed computing techniques: ensuring causality, exclusive access, dealing with deadlocks, fault protection, mobility of computation, and security. The course is concluded with an overview of techniques for distributed data storages using the DHT (Distributed Hash Table) method and an overview of systems with mobile computing components.
