Reviews the latest advances in the all-important field of scalable computing
In telecommunications and software engineering, scalability is the ability of a system, network, or process to either handle growing amounts of work in a graceful manner or be enlarged to accommodate that growth. It is a desirable property for many scientific, industrial, and business applications and an important feature for hardware.
This immersive book summarizes the latest research achievements in the field of scalable computing and covers new topics that have emerged recently on computing and communications, such as unconventional computing, green and sustainable computing, cloud and volunteer computing, and more. Filled with contributions from world-renowned engineers, researchers, and IT professionals in diverse areas, Scalable Computing and Communications covers:
- Circuit and component design
- Operating systems
- Green computing
- Network-on-chip paradigms
- Computational grids
- High-performance computing
- Networking in scalable computing and mobile computing
- Next-generation networking
- Cloud computing
- Peer-to-peer systems
Scalable Computing and Communications is well organized with basic concepts, software infrastructure and middleware, and applications and systems. Filled with numerous case studies, figures, and tables, it is a valuable book that offers great insight into future trends and emerging topics for professionals and students in the field.
