Abstract : This report describes the primary functional capabilities which will be designed into the Distributed Operating System to be designed and implemented. The goals include coherence and uniformity in the user model of the system, survivability and integrity of the system function and data, scalability of the architecture, resource management, component substitutability, and operation and maintenance procedures. The concept of a virtual Local Network, making it possible to substitute a variety of local area network vendor products in the architecture, is described. (Author)
