The Distributed Operating Systems lecture continues and consolidates the topics of the basic course Operating Systems and Security. It is particularly focused on presenting a balanced combination of distributed systems in-use as well as research projects and their underlying construction principles.

The lecture will cover the following aspects:
  • Scalability and Fault Tolerance
  • Memory Consistency and Synchronization in Parallel Systems
  • Security in Distributed Systems and Trusted Computing


Slides will be published here shortly before the lectures.

  1. Scalability and DNS
  2. Parallel Systems Software: High Performance Computing, Additional slides (MPI), Additional literature: Paper 1, Paper 2
  3. Trusted Computing


Exercises will be published here about a week before the tutorials. The first tutorial will be on 11 April, 2017.

  1. Domain Name System (April 11 2017)


  • Exercise courses will be held roughly biweekly as announced in the lecture and on the website.
