Fallacies of Distributed Computing

I was reading something and came across these fallacies of Distributed Computing which all beginners (to distributed computing) have. Oh how we all learn.

  1. The network is reliable
  2. Latency is zero
  3. Bandwidth is infinite
  4. The network is secure
  5. Topology doesn’t change
  6. There is only one administrator
  7. Transport cost is zero
  8. The network is homogeneous

Quite often, I have been asked what’s up with the “gibberish” and the funny title of the blog?
