Real-time systems are of importance to a large number of university laboratories and research institutes worldwide, and without the proper integration of real-time into distributed computing, institutions simply could not function.
Achieving Real-Time in Distributed Computing: From Grids to Clouds offers over 400 accounts from a wide range of specific research efforts. Major focus is given to the need for methodologies, tools, and architectures for complex distributed systems that address the practical issues of performance guarantees, timed execution, real-time management of resources, synchronized communication under various load conditions, satisfaction of QoS constraints, and dealing with the trade-offs between these aspects.
Reviews and Testimonials
Real-time systems are of importance to a large number of university laboratories and research institutes worldwide. This book represents the integration and discussion of many research efforts which can be exploited differently by the readers. For example, researchers may consider the future trends section as a 'research agenda' for future projects, which students may identify potential PhD areas.

Recommended- I recommend the book “Achieving Real-Time in Distributed Computing: From Grids to Clouds” to anyone who is a novice or expert in the domain of “Real-time distributed systems”. Despite that several chapters present “State-of-the art” on specific topics, the coverage topics and the methodology of presentation with the solid information lead me to recommend this book as a reference book for real time distribute systems in grid and cloud computing.
