Abstract

As distributed computing becomes more widespread, both in high-energy physics and in other applications, centralized operating systems will gradually give way to distributed ones. In this paper the authors discuss some current research on five issues that are central to the design of distributed operating systems: communications primitives, naming and protection, resource management, fault tolerance, and system services. For each of these issues, some principles, examples, and other considerations are given.
