Patrick Valduriez INRIA. 161 rue Ada. 34392 Montpellier Cedex France. As one can imagine, in a fast changing area such as this, there have been signicant changes in the intervening period. Distributed data management went from a potentially signicant technology to one that is common place.

The major concept that are imperative are the following : distributed databases design, distributed query optimization and distributed transaction management, since those concepts appear in every kind of distributed data management approach.

ca) Patrick Valduriez (patrick. This is the scope of distributed and parallel database systems, which have moved from a small part of the worldwide computing environment a few decades ago to mainstream. In this chapter, we provide an overview of this technology, before we examine the details in subsequent chapters. History of Distributed DBMS Before the advent of database systems in the 1960s, the prevalent mode of computation was one where each application defined and maintained its own data (Fig.

This book is a concept and theory oriented. It describes the union of database systems and computer networks technologies.

First, they start with a brief introduction of DBMS and Computer Networks. If you do not know much about relational database management systems or computer networks then it is advised that you read chapter 2.

Then, the authors continue with a description of Distributed Database Design. There are some important factors. For instance, the distribution design issues, specifically fragmentation and allocation.

There are some chapters that talk about Database integration, access control, and query processing, however, I consider Chapters 10 to Chapter 13 the most relevant and interesting of the book. Chapter 10 provides a nice introduction to transaction management concepts (mutual consistency, transaction's definition, properties of transactions, and types of transactions). Then, Distributed Concurrency Control comes into place providing a very good description Serializability Theory. Moreover, they explain clearly concurrency control mechanisms (Locking-based, timestamp-based, and optimistic-based), at the end of the chapter you can observe deadlock management and relaxed concurrency control mechanisms. Finally, Distributed DBMS reliability is explained providing a nice understanding of failures and how to deal with those. Network partitioning is also discussed.

Finally, what I like most about the book is the research-oriented content. There are plenty of resources at the end of each chapter that you can take advantage of (Bibliographic notes). For instance, in serializability theory, they mention and explain Papadimitriou paper which is easier to understand than the paper itself. The book is easy to read and you can extend your understanding reading the additional material.

Hope this helps.
In the forward, the authors note that the publisher of the first two editions, Pearson, opted out of this third. I can see why. Almost all of the text is dated. While I don't have either of the earlier editions, the biblio for the chapters runs for the 1970s and 1980s for the most part. I expect the chapters are too, now that I've had the time to read through them. One might see this as a nose thumbing to newbies believing that only newbies know anything. On the other hand, up-to-date literature is always more appropriate. Unless the authors really assert that distributed database tech hasn't changed much since the 1980s. :)
This book was chosen as the main text for a distributed database systems graduate Computer Science course I recently took. For a CS course on the subject, it is an obvious pick since not many related texts exist on the market. The text is good, but needs updating since it was published in 1999. Research papers from IEEE and ACM were relied on as supplementary reading, since research in DDBS continues, and much has been written in the last four years.
Hardcover version in perfect quality. Fast delivery. Thanks.
I just got my hands on this book for my master program study. From just reading a couple of chapters, I can see where this book is going. It is clear that the book was published in a rush, and never reviewed properly. The author takes too much time struggling to explain the theory, and when it comes to the example, author simply tells that its obvious, although the theory behind is explained in at least 3 pages. Also, the amount of mistakes I found in this short period is enormous and unbarebale. You start to get lost when following the example and feel you can move forward.

My advise for you, if you are not obliged to buy this book, then don't do so, specially if you look at the price of it.
The content is pretty good, but the book is written in a very cryptic language that's hard to follow.
Thanks awesome book
