From the Author:

Author Page of this Book
Dear Colleagues,

I just happen to notice a comment from one of our prospective readers, who is keen on looking at the book table of contents, etc. Hence, thought I should create a website of the book providing latest on-line information related to the book along with the following information:

- The complete table of contents - Preface - A sample chapter - Educational Resources

Links to free-ware/public domain software related to cluster computing: * Fast Communication Protocols * A complete cluster environment * Cluster Management Systems * Programming Environments like MPI and PVM * Sample Parallel Applications * Parallel Computing on Lunux/NT * and much more.

I am also including known links to universities adopting this book. Please visit book website maintained by me for more information at:

http://www.dgs.monash.edu.au/~rajkumar/hpcc.html OR http://www.bigfoot.com/~buyya/hpcc.html

If you are a faculty member and would like to use this book in your course, please contact me. I may be able to provide you more teaching resources.

Another information on Cluster Computing:

By recognizing the growing requirements of cluster computing, IEEE Computer Society has formed a task force:

IEEE Task Force on Cluster Computing (TFCC) URL: http://www.dgs.monash.edu.au/~rajkumar/tfcc/

From TFCC website, you will find a lot of information related to cluster computing provided by leading experts of the field.

I welcome your suggestions and please feel free to contact me by email either at rajkumar@ieee.org or buyya@computer.org or rajkumar@dgs.monash.edu.au.

I hope you will find the book useful and interesting.

All the best.

Yours Sincrely,

Rajkumar Buyya

The book contains expert coverage of "commodity supercomputing" systems and architectures; Internet-based wide area "metacomputing" systems; the role of Java; new applications and algorithms; advanced techniques for enhancing availability and throughput; and much more. Discover the state-of-the-art in:

  • Communal multiprocessing/adaptive parallelism techniques for resource sharing
  • Networking, lightweight protocols, active messages, "killer switches," and I/O
