Zookeeper: Distributed Process Coordinationby Flavio Junqueira
Synopses & Reviews
Building distributed applications is difficult enough without having to coordinate the actions that make them work. This practical guide shows how Apache ZooKeeper helps you manage distributed systems, so you can focus mainly on application logic. Even with ZooKeeper, implementing coordination tasks is not trivial, but this book provides good practices to give you a head start, and points out caveats that developers and administrators alike need to watch for along the way.
In three separate sections, ZooKeeper contributors Flavio Junqueira and Benjamin Reed introduce the principles of distributed systems, provide ZooKeeper programming techniques, and include the information you need to administer this service.
If youre involved in large Hadoop projects, this book shows you how ZooKeeper simplifies the task of implementing a distributed system. Implementing coordination tasks with ZooKeeper is not entirely trivial. There are still subtle points and caveats to watch out for. With this book, ZooKeeper contributors Flavio Junqueira and Benjamin Reed provide good practices for building systems with this Apache software tool.
