 Numeral system - Open Encyclopedia
Numeral systems are sometimes called number systems, but that name is misleading: different systems of numbers, such as the system of real numbers, the system of complex numbers, the system of p-adic numbers, etc., are not the topic of this article.
A numeral system (or system of numeration) is a framework where a set of numbers are represented by numerals in a consistent manner.
The simplest numeral system is the unary numeral system, in which every natural number is represented by a corresponding number of symbols.

 Operating system - Encyclopedia.WorldSearch
An operating system is conceptually broken into three sets of components: a user interface (which may consist of a graphical user interface and/or a command line interpreter or "shell"), low-level system utilities, and a kernel--which is the heart of the operating system.
The operating system ensures that other applications are able to use memory, input and output devices and have access to the file system.
Older operating systems which are still used in niche markets include the Windows-like OS/2 from IBM; VMS from Hewlett-Packard (formerly DEC); Mac OS, the non-Unix precursor to Apple's Mac OS X; and AmigaOS, the first GUI based operating system with advanced multimedia capabilities available to the general public.

 Cluster Virtual Machine for Java Homepage
The single system image characteristic of Cluster VM for Java stems from its novel object model that separates the application's view of an object (every object is a unique data structure) from its implementation (objects may have consistent replications on different nodes).
Cluster VM for Java is a Java Virtual Machine (JVM) that provides a Single System Image (SSI) of a traditional JVM, while executing in a distributed fashion on the nodes of a cluster.
Currently, we have a running prototype, which is a single JVM from the application's point of view, but which distributes objects and executes methods over a cluster using various optimization techniques to enhance scalability.

 If it's Linux... we know it: Nimbus™
Nimbus™ can be considered the best-of-class operating system for Linux-based supercomputing, combining the best features of SSI (Single System Image) clustering with commercial refinements which bring polish, support, and ease of installation into a technically superior and feature-rich user environment.
System resource monitoring is accomplished using a modified Supermon (a lightweight systems monitoring system) as the back-end, coupled with Ganglia in order to provide complete system statistics with a simple graphical interface to minimize impact on system performance.
Another advantage of this system is that a complete sample can be taken with a single system call, rather than the dozens required to read the same information from the proc filesystem or the sysctl interface.

 Linux-Bangalore/2003:Talk Details
Usually, when one talks about Single System Image (SSI), he/she talks about layers and levels of SSI, depending on how many subsystems and resources cooperate to create the illusion of a single system, comprising perhaps hundreds or thousands of nodes, that provide the look and feel of a single workstation (albeit on steroids).
In an attempt to achieve true SSI that cooperates at many different levels, the OpenSSI team has analyzed and dissected clusters into their component parts to provide a set of SSI building blocks at the system call level from which any type of cluster can be implemented.
Since then he has been working on various system technologies.

 Future operating system direction for Cray customers
The division of the system into cells also introduces an extra level of complexity, since the activities of the cells must be coordinated to provide a single-system image.
For example, the code for networks, ttys, pipes, and System V message queues could run on the golden cell, while the rest of the cells only run simple "clients." Recovery is simpler, as most subsystems need only to be able to recover from losing a client, but not a server.
The existence of a golden cell permits the "basic distribution" of components, where the bulk of the system runs on the golden cell, and requests are "function shipped" from all other cells to the golden cell.

Having a single "system image" format dramatically decreases the time it takes to port various applications in that they do not need to concentrate on the clustering in order to have it take advantage of the parallelism possibilities.
Multiple parts of the Solaris operating system had to be changed to provide this single image, including process creation (where does it now live); process, group, and session IDs for parts on each machine; signal handling across the platforms; and support for a global /proc filesystem.
The main design goal was to have a single OS image, not a number of nodes each running its own OS.
