Sample text

A project was set up with the objective to propose a solution which meets the demands of users on the campus. A prototype should dcmonstrate the feasibility of the proposed solution and serve for evaluation in a realistic situation. This led to the installation of the Distributed Academic Computing project, also known as Project FI (Forschungsprojekt I) within the cooperation. The papers in this chapter describe the results achieved in this project. We wish to express our gratitude to the University of Karlsruhe, to the State of BadenWtlrttemberg, and to the Management of IBM Germany for the initiation of this project and for their continued encouragement and support during a four year research effort.

All services are distributed, no central authority is required. Services for Remote File Access and Remote Execution permit users to access mes or execute remote programs, as if the mes or remote programs were actually locally available. A Task Setup Service offers elements of a global service for the distribution of functions over nodes in the network. DACNOS is designed for portability and adaptation to any general purpose guest operating system. It is currently implemented under three systems: under PC DOS on IBM PC AT or IBM PS/2, under VM/CMS on IBM S/370, and under VMS on DEC VAX.
