Reliability and scalability are major concerns when designing operating systems for large-scale shared-memory multiprocessors. In this paper we describe Hive, an operating system with a novel kernel architecture that addresses these issues Hive is structured as an internal distributed system of independent kernels called cells. This improves reliabihty because a hardwme or software fault damages only one cell rather than the whole system, and improves scalability because few kernel resources<span class="external-identifiers"> <a target="_blank" rel="external noopener noreferrer" href="https://doi.org/10.1145/224056.224059">doi:10.1145/224056.224059</a> <a target="_blank" rel="external noopener" href="https://dblp.org/rec/conf/sosp/ChapinRDLTG95.html">dblp:conf/sosp/ChapinRDLTG95</a> <a target="_blank" rel="external noopener" href="https://fatcat.wiki/release/k7zdsiklezgyzc2s4427ent5oe">fatcat:k7zdsiklezgyzc2s4427ent5oe</a> </span>

This paper focuses on Hive's solutlon to the following key challenges: ( 1) fault containment, i.e. confining the effects of hardware or software faults to the cell where they occur, and (2) memory sharing among cells, which is requmed to achieve
