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 more than ten 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.
