The MOSIX distributed operating system
is an ongoing project that began in 1981.
Using a federated model instead of the usual model of centralized control (as in distributed operating systems
) was a conscious decision by the Jini designers.
In order to handle inaccessibility of objects, in the Argus distributed operating system
[Liskov and Sheifler 1983] the programmer may associate an exception with an invocation.
The Amoeba distributed operating system
: Selected papers 1984-1987.
The Amoeba project has clearly demonstrated that it is possible to build an efficient, high-performance distributed operating system
on current hardware.
The architecture of the Cronus Distributed Operating System
. In Proceedings of the Sixth International Conference on Distributed Computing Systems (Cambridge, Mass., Feb.
Sincce migration operations take a relatively short time to complete, the operations can be incorporated into the distributed operating system
and their control automated without offline monitoring and decision-making.
Here, each node functions as a part of the same distributed operating system
. A different approach is employed to handle the problems of communicating among and using software across a collection of loosely coupled heterogeneous computer systems (HCS); each node or cluster of nodes may be a different system offering unique services that are shared across the network.
This is more akin to distributed operating systems
than to enterprise management systems.
Members of Parascale's founding engineering team have successfully delivered distributed operating systems
and distributed file systems for companies including Sun (Sun Cluster), HP (Open SSI), Teradata (Teradata RDBMS), and IBM (AIX TCF).
Revenue from sales of its software on Unix, NT and other distributed operating systems
accelerated further at 35% years over year to reach $816m in the quarter.
