Computer, Network, Software, and Hardware Engineering with Applications

Book Description

There are many books on computers, networks, and but none that integrate the three with applications. Integration is important because, increasingly, dominates the performance, reliability, maintainability, and availability of complex computer and systems. Books on engineering typically portray as if it exists in a vacuum with no relationship to the wider system. This is wrong because a system is more than . It is comprised of people, organizations, processes, hardware, and . All of these components must be considered in an integrative fashion when designing systems. On the other hand, books on computers and networks do not demonstrate a deep understanding of the intricacies of developing . In this book you will learn, for example, how to quantitatively analyze the performance, reliability, maintainability, and availability of computers, networks, and software in relation to the total system. Furthermore, you will learn how to evaluate and mitigate the of deploying integrated systems. You will learn how to apply many dealing with the optimization of systems. Numerous quantitative examples are provided to help you understand and interpret model results. This book can be used as a first year graduate course in computer, , and software engineering; as an on-the-job reference for computer, , and software engineers; and as a reference for these disciplines.
