Abstract

One of the key trends in computing over the past two decades, both at the level of large-scale and small-scale systems, has been distribution. At one extreme, given the advent of new paradigms such as cloud computing, utility computing, and social networks, large-scale software systems are now routinely distributed over several machines or clusters of machines, which can in turn be spread over large geographic regions.
