Network operating system (NOS): Software that (a) controls a network and its message (e.g.
Note 1: A network operating system is most frequently used with local area networks and wide area networks, but could also have application to larger network systems.
Note 2: The upper 5 layers of the OSI Reference Model provide the foundation upon which many network operating systems are based.

 Components of a Network Operating System   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-08)
Though the idea of using a pure message-passing operating system to improve this situation is not a new one, in the environment of a mature, high speed, local area network it is an idea whose time has come.
If the term "Network Operating System" is taken to refer to a collection of cooperating computer systems working together to provide services by multiplexing the hardware resources available on a network, then the title "Components of a Network Operating System" suggests a discussion of the "Component" systems.
The first network protocol that the NLTSS message system will be interfaced with, however, has been designed to eliminate the opening and closing of circuits while still maintaining logical message separation very much as the NLTSS message system interface does [13, 25, 26].

 The Network Operating System
A client-server operating system is responsible for coordinating the use of all resources and services available from the server in which it is running.
For example, network users at workstations request the use of services and resources though client software, which runs in the workstation and talks to the operating system in the server by means of a common protocol.
However, peer-to-peer networks provide fewer services than client-server operating systems, the services provided are a great deal less robust than those provided by mature, full-featured client-server operating systems, and the performance of peer-to-peer networks commonly decreases significantly under a heavy load.

 Tuning Hardware, Operating System, and Network Performance
Network performance is affected when the supply of resources is unable to keep up with the demand for resources.
To determine whether you have enough bandwidth in a given deployment, you can use the network monitoring tools provided by your network operating system vendor to see what the load is on the network system.
Also monitor the amount of data being transferred across the your network by checking the data transferred between the application and the application server, and between the application server and the database server.

 Chapter 6: Software
Unlike operating systems, such as DOS and Windows, that are designed for single users to control one computer, network operating systems (NOS) coordinate the activities of multiple computers across a network.
Peer-to-peer network operating systems allow users to share resources and files located on their computers and to access shared resources found on other computers.
The network operating system provides the mechanism to integrate all the components of the network and allow multiple users to simultaneously share the same resources irrespective of physical location.

Network operating systems typically are used to run computers that act as servers.
They provide the capabilities required for network operation.
Network operating systems are also designed for client computers and provide functions so the distinction between network operating systems and stand alone operating systems is not always obvious.

 Managing Domains in a Network Operating System   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-08)
Because computer system users are usually quite vocal in expressing their unmet needs for resource access, OS implementers are always made acutely aware of this availability half of the resource management task.
System users seldom complain too loudly about being granted access to resources that they do not need or are not authorized to access.
In C-list systems, capabilities do authorize resource access, but the term is generally restricted to refer to a specific form of capability implemented as some type of pointer that is protected by the kernel of a stand-alone OS.

NT Server networks requires larger IS budgets and staffing to accommodate the increased cost of managing multiple domains, domain relationships, and additional hardware.
One important advantage NetWare 5 offers is that users can easily manage and control their entire heterogeneous networking environment including multiple network protocols (such as IP and IPX), applications (such as Java, Web-based and server), operating systems (such as NT Server), and desktops.
Some experts believe that the ability to use multiple network transport protocols is the keystone of a network operating environment.

A network operating system is the software on a computer that allows clients to access resources.
Technically, any client operating system including Windows 95/98/ME/2000 and Macintosh OS 7, 8, 9, and X can be classified as network operating systems because they all have the ability to share resources with other users.
For the purposes of this course, we will concentrate on the operating systems that were designed specifically to provide access to resources.

 Network Operating System   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-08)
Peer-to-Peer networks tend to be less expensive, at least initially because a dedicated server is not required, and easier to set up since they can be created by reconfiguring single user operating systems.
However, Peer-to-Peer networks tend to require a small number of computers to function well, do not have centralized management for control of and access to files and applications, provide minimal security, and can be difficult to maintain due to updating all copies of the NOS on each computer in the network.
However, client/server networks are typically more expensive than peer-to-peer networks, since one or more dedicated servers must be purchased, tend to require more maintenance, and can be considered more dependent since failure in the server(s) can cause the entire network to fail.

HP is bringing its OpenVMS operating system, middleware, and application portfolio to Intel® Itanium® architecture, which has a 64-bit model and basic system functions similar to the Alpha chip.
AlphaServer system architecture supports both IEEE and VAX system floating-point formats in hardware, and OpenVMS compilers generate code using the VAX system formats by default, with options (on AlphaServer systems) to use IEEE formats.
Irrespective of whether it was originally written for VAX systems or AlphaServer systems, an OpenVMS application that uses the default VAX system floating-point formats needs to produce equivalent behavior on the Itanium architecture using IEEE formats at the lowest level.

 Inferno network operating system
Inferno is a network operating system based on more than 30 years of research in operating systems and programming languages by Rob Pike, Dennis Ritchie, Ken Thompson and others at Lucent Technologies' Bell Labs.
Lets applications 'compute a name space': all resources are represented as file systems, which an application assembles into an application-specific hierarchy or 'name space', private or shared, that hides their source, local or remote, and nature, static or dynamic, for completely transparent access.
Inferno runs as a native, embedded operating system on a wide range of processor architectures and also, uniquely, as an emulated operating system environment on Windows, Linux, Solaris, and other systems.

i have an assignment to analyze about the network operating system, but i'm quite blind about it.
As a Network Operating System covers quite a bit of territory (types of operating systems, protocol stacks, supporting hardware, etc.), perhaps you could focus your question to something more specific.
Given that Novell successfully migrates their Netware stuff to Linux, I'd say that they will have one of the most flexible "enterprise class" operating systems out there (the Linux kernel in and of itself supports multiple network protocol stacks and a huge variety of hardware).

 Define Network File System - a definition from Whatis.com - see also: NFS   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-08)
The Network File System (NFS) is a client/server application that lets a computer user view and optionally store and update file on a remote computer as though they were on the user's own computer.
Using NFS, the user or a system administrator can mount all or a portion of a file system (which is a portion of the hierarchical tree in any file directory and subdirectory, including the one you find on your PC or Mac).
The portion of your file system that is mounted (designated as accessible) can be accessed with whatever privileges go with your access to each file (read-only or read-write).
