Hints and Principles for Computer System Design [article]

Butler Lampson
2021 arXiv   pre-print
This new long version of my 1983 paper suggests the goals you might have for your system -- Simple, Timely, Efficient, Adaptable, Dependable, Yummy (STEADY) -- and techniques for achieving them -- Approximate  ...  It also gives some principles for system design that are more than just hints, and many examples of how to apply the ideas.  ...  Once there was a bank with a mission-critical data center. They had a diesel generator to provide backup power, and they tested the backup regularly by switching to it for 15 minutes once a week.  ...
