Operating Systems

Chair of Operating Systems

The Operating Systems Group

The TUD:OS (TU Dresden Operating Systems) group's objective is to reduce complexity for critical systems by orders of magnitude. To this end, we research, develop and use our own micro-kernel and virtualization technology. We use micro-kernels to componentise critical parts of systems and virtualisation to enable reuse of legacy software for uncritical parts.

It is our objective to combine ambitious systems research with profound education in operating systems and related areas. We try to push research and development far enough such that its results can be used outside of our group, for example by other research groups or as starting points for industrial partners. read more ...
