Computer Architecture: A Quantitative Approach, Fifth Edition, explores the ways that software and technology in the cloud are accessed by digital media, such as cell phones, computers, tablets, and other mobile devices. The book, which became a part of Intel´s 2012 recommended reading list for developers, covers the revolution of mobile computing. It also highlights the two most important factors in architecture today: parallelism and memory hierarchy. This fully updated edition is comprised of six chapters that follow a consistent framework: explanation of the ideas in each chapter; a crosscutting issues section, which presents how the concepts covered in one chapter connect with those given in other chapters; a putting it all together section that links these concepts by discussing how they are applied in real machine; and detailed examples of misunderstandings and architectural traps commonly encountered by developers and architects. Formulas for energy, static and dynamic power, integrated circuit costs, reliability, and availability are included. The book also covers virtual machines, SRAM and DRAM technologies, and new material on Flash memory. Other topics include the exploitation of instruction-level parallelism in high-performance processors, superscalar execution, dynamic scheduling and multithreading, vector architectures, multicore processors, and warehouse-scale computers (WSCs). There are updated case studies and completely new exercises. Additional reference appendices are available online. This book will be a valuable reference for computer architects, programmers, application developers, compiler and system software developers, computer system designers and application developers. Part of Intel´s 2012 Recommended Reading List for Developers Updated to cover the mobile computing revolution Emphasizes the two most important topics in architecture today: memory hierarchy and parallelism in all its forms. Develops common themes throughout each chapter: power, performance, cost, dependability, protection, programming models, and emerging trends (´´What´s Next´´) Includes three review appendices in the printed text. Additional reference appendices are available online. Includes updated Case Studies and completely new exercises.
As a software architect you work in a wide-ranging and dynamic environment. You have to understand the needs of your customer, design architectures that satisfy both functional and non-functional requirements, and lead development teams in implementing the architecture. And it is an environment that is constantly changing: trends such as cloud computing, service orientation, and model-driven procedures open up new architectural possibilities. This book will help you to develop a holistic architectural awareness and knowledge base that extends beyond concrete methods, techniques, and technologies. It will also help you to acquire or expand the technical, methodological, and social competences that you need. The authors place the spotlight on you, the architect, and offer you long-term architectural orientation. They give you numerous guidelines, checklists, and best practices to support you in your practical work. ´´Software Architecture´´ offers IT students, software developers, and software architects a holistic and consistent orientation across relevant topics. The book also provides valuable information and suggestions for system architects and enterprise architects, since many of the topics presented are also relevant for their work. Furthermore, IT project leads and other IT managers can use the book to acquire an enhanced understanding of architecture. Further information is available at www.software-architecture-book.org.

The 50 revised full papers and 7 revised short papers presented were carefully reviewed and selected from 192 submissions. The papers deal with research results and development activities in all aspects of parallel architectures, algorithms and programming techniques.
´´This new edition is brighter, shinier, more complete, more pragmatic, more focused than the previous one, and I wouldn´t have thought it possible to improve on the original. As the field of software architecture has grown over these past decades, there is much more to be said, much more that we know, and much more that we can reflect upon of what´s worked and what hasn´t-and the authors here do all that, and more.´´ -From the Foreword by Grady Booch, IBM Fellow Software architecture-the conceptual glue that holds every phase of a project together for its many stakeholders-is widely recognized as a critical element in modern software development. Practitioners have increasingly discovered that close attention to a software system´s architecture pays valuable dividends. Without an architecture that is appropriate for the problem being solved, a project will stumble along or, most likely, fail. Even with a superb architecture, if that architecture is not well understood or well communicated-in other words, is not well documented-the project cannot be deemed a complete success. This revision of Documenting Software Architectures provides the most complete and current guidance, independent of language or notation, on how to capture an architecture in a commonly understandable form. Drawing on their extensive experience, the authors first help you decide what information to document, and then, with guidelines and examples (in various notations, including UML), show you how to express an architecture so that others can successfully use, maintain, and build a system from it. The book features rules for sound documentation, the goals and strategies of documentation, architectural views and styles, documentation for software interfaces and software behavior, and templates for capturing and organizing information to generate a coherent package. New and improved in this second edition: * Coverage of documentation for new architectural styles, such as service-oriented architectures, multi-tier architectures, and architectures for aspect-oriented systems * Guidance oriented to documentation in an Agile development environment * Deeper treatment of the systematic rationale, reflecting best industrial practices * Improved templates, reflecting years of use and feedback, and more documentation layout options * A new, comprehensive example (available online), featuring documentation of a Web-based service-oriented system
Now in its third edition, this best-selling book continues to bring you some of the best thinking on how to apply Oracle Database to produce scalable applications that perform well and deliver correct results. Tom Kyte and Darl Kuhn share a simple philosophy: you can treat Oracle as a black box and just stick data into it, or you can understand how it works and exploit it as a powerful computing environment. If you choose the latter, then you’ll find that there are few information management problems that you cannot solve quickly and elegantly. This fully revised third edition covers the developments up to Oracle Database 12 c . Significant new content is included surrounding Oracles new cloud feature set, and especially the use of pluggable databases. Each feature is taught in a proof-by-example manner, not only discussing what it is, but also how it works, how to implement software using it, and the common pitfalls associated with it. Don’t treat Oracle Database as a black-box. Get this book. Get under the hood. Turbo-charge your career. Revised to cover Oracle Database 12 c Proof-by-example approach: Let the evidence be your guide Dives deeply into Oracle Database’s most powerful features Thomas Kyte is vice president of the Core Technologies Group at Oracle Corporation and has been with the company since version 7.0.9 was released in 1993. Kyte, however, has been working with Oracle since version 5.1.5c. At Oracle, Kyte works with the Oracle database, and more specifically, he helps clients who are using the Oracle database and works directly with them specifying and building their systems or rebuilding and tuning them. Prior to working at Oracle, Kyte was a systems integrator who built large-scale, heterogeneous databases and applications for military and government clients.Tom Kyte is the same Ask Tom whose column appears in Oracle Magazine, where he answers questions about the Oracle database and tools that developers and database administrators struggle with every day.

Software patterns are designs that can be reused and reapplied to new situations. They have revolutionized the way developers think about the way software is designed, built, and documented. In Pattern-Oriented Software Architecture an international team of authors explain what pattern languages are, what they are not, and how to use them effectively. The book also looks beyond the language to reveal the past, present, and future state of patterns. With numerous examples, war stories, and diagrams, Pattern-Oriented Software Architecture provides a solid foundation for practitioners interested in gaining an in-depth understanding of the concepts underlying software patterns. The eagerly awaited Pattern-Oriented Software Architecture (POSA) Volume 4 is about a pattern language for distributed computing. The authors will guide you through the best practices and introduce you to key areas of building distributed software systems. POSA 4 connects many stand-alone patterns, pattern collections and pattern languages from the existing body of literature found in the POSA series. Such patterns relate to and are useful for distributed computing to a single language. * The panel of experts provides you with a consistent and coherent holistic view on the craft of building distributed systems. * Includes a foreword by Martin Fowler * A must read for practitioners who want practical advice to develop a comprehensive language integrating patterns from key literature.
