This third edition of a classic textbook can be used to teach at the senior undergraduate and graduate levels. The material concentrates on fundamental theories as well as techniques and algorithms. The advent of the Internet and the World Wide Web, and, more recently, the emergence of cloud computing and streaming data applications, has forced a renewal of interest in distributed and parallel data management, while, at the same time, requiring a rethinking of some of the traditional techniques. This book covers the breadth and depth of this re-emerging field. The coverage consists of two parts. The first part discusses the fundamental principles of distributed data management and includes distribution design, data integration, distributed query processing and optimization, distributed transaction management, and replication. The second part focuses on more advanced topics and includes discussion of parallel database systems, distributed object management, peer-to-peer data management, web data management, data stream systems, and cloud computing. New in this Edition: * New chapters, covering database replication, database integration, multidatabase query processing, peer-to-peer data management, and web data management. * Coverage of emerging topics such as data streams and cloud computing * Extensive revisions and updates based on years of class testing and feedback Ancillary teaching materials are available.

Review quote

From the reviews of the third edition: "This is an excellent book that provides an in-depth overview of all issues related to distributed data management. ... Each chapter ... ends with a conclusion that provides a nice summary and additional reflections, as well as bibliographic notes. ... The book ends with an extensive list of references and an index. ... Instructors of advanced database courses could use this book as a textbook. It would also interest researchers on topics related to distributed data management. I highly recommend this excellent book." (Sergio Ilarri, ACM Computing Reviews, August, 2011)
