Distributed Systems

Logo for Distributed Systems
This is a free, online textbook offered by Google Code University.  According to the authors, "We cover what designers and programmers need to consider in developing applications in a distributed environment. We also cover parallel computation using an open source tool called Hadoop, which is a MapReduce implementation, running on a distributed file system. The goal is to help build an understanding of these important new trends, and provide opportunities to practice with them."
