Anti-Fragile ICT Systems

Tha book ntroduces a novel approach to the design and operation of large ICT systems. It views the technical solutions and their stakeholders as complex adaptive systems and rgues that traditional risk analyses can not predict all future incidents with major impacts. To avoid unacceptable events, it is feasibl to establish and operate anti-fragile ICT systems that limit the impact of all incidents, and which learn from small-impact incidents how to function increasingly well in changing environments.

A book applies four design principles and one operational principle to achieve anti-fragility for different classes of incidents. It iscusses how systems can achieve high availability, prevent malware epidemics, and detect anomalies. Analyses of Netflix 's media streaming solution, Norwegian telecom infrastructures, e-government platforms, and Numenta 's anomaly detection software show that cloud computing is essential to achieving anti-fragility for classes of events with negative impacts.

The chapters on malware propagation were n't of much use to me: I appreciate the author 's focus because of his particular research topics, but I do n't know they add much to the general discussion.
