Course Objectives The objective of this course is to teach the students the fundamental issues in distributed systems with a strong emphasis on data management. After taking the course, students are expected to have an understanding of topics ranging from distributed transaction management and enhanced concurrency control to data replication and distributed query processing and optimization.
Course Description The students who succeeded in this course;
  • will be able to explain distributed database technology comprehensively,
  • will be able to describe transaction management and concurrency control in distributed database management systems,
  • will be able to design distributed databases when fragmentation and/or replication are required,
  • will be able to assess the correctness of optimistic and pessimistic concurrency control algorithms which are based on either locking or timestamp ordering,
  • will be able to apply distributed recovery and commit protocols in the presence of site failures and network partitioning.
Course Content In this course, topics ranging from distributed database design, distributed transaction management and enhanced concurrency control to data replication and distributed query processing and optimization will be discussed.
