This course focuses on the design of dependable (fault-tolerant and reliable) computing systems. In particular, we will attempt to understand the root causes of faults in computer systems and their impact. We will study both traditional and cutting-edge techniques to build dependable computing systems. Finally, we will explore the practical applications of the techniques in the context of deployed systems. An important thread that runs through the course is the evaluation of dependable systems, and to this end, we will study techniques ranging from analytical modelling to empirical validation. The assignments will give students hands-on exposure to cutting-edge tools and techniques for dependability evaluation.
