Distributed Operating Systems on Loosely And Tightly Coupled Architectures

Speaker  Rebecca Isaacs

Affiliation  MSR Cambridge

Date recorded  29 May 2012

In this talk I will present a selection of historical multiprocessor and distributed operating systems from the 1970’s through to the last decade and examine characteristics of those systems that remain relevant for distributed systems design today. At first glance the historical systems seem quite different to the architectures and software designs that we currently favor, but I hope to show that although the trade-offs have changed as technology has evolved, many of the issues stay the same.
