Fault-Tolerant Systems, Second Edition is the first book on fault tolerance design utilizing a systems approach to both hardware and software. No other text takes this approach or offers the comprehensive and up-to-date treatment that Koren and Krishna provide. The book comprehensively covers the design of fault-tolerant hardware and software, use of fault-tolerance techniques to improve manufacturing yields, and design and analysis of networks. Incorporating case studies that highlight six different computer systems with fault-tolerance techniques implemented in their design, the book includes critical material on methods to protect against threats to encryption subsystems used for security purposes.
The text’s updated content will help students and practitioners in electrical and computer engineering and computer science learn how to design reliable computing systems, and how to analyze fault-tolerant computing systems.
- Delivers the first book on fault tolerance design with a systems approach
- Offers comprehensive coverage of both hardware and software fault tolerance, as well as information and time redundancy
- Features fully updated content plus new chapters on failure mechanisms and fault-tolerance in cyber-physical systems
- Provides a complete ancillary package, including an on-line solutions manual for instructors and PowerPoint slides
Senior undergraduate, graduate students in fault-tolerance computing courses; professional architects of high performance processors, and designers of enterprise computing systems
