The distributed systems architect assembles pieces of hardware that are at least as large as a computer or a network router, and assigns pieces of software that are self-contained - such as Java applets - to those hardware components. As system complexity, size and diversity grow, the probability of inconsistency, unreliability, non-responsiveness and insecurity, increases. It is absolutely necessary for distributed systems architects to understand the management of such complex systems. "Distributed Systems for System Architects" addresses these issues.
