For distributed systems, system reliability is defined as the probability that the system can run an entire task successfully. When the system's hardware configuration is fixed, the system reliability is mainly dependent on the software design. The task allocation problem is addressed with the goal of maximizing the system reliability. A quantitative problem model, algorithms for optimal and suboptimal solutions, and simulation results are provided and discussed
