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 resourcesdoi:10.1145/224057.224059 fatcat:tksf7nstjbdhxfvui3xiqcyxrm
