Operating System Design Options. Hierarchical Structure. Many OS are designed and implemented using a hierarchical structure. Functions at one level are allowed to refer only to functions provided by the same or lower levels; i.e., there should be no outward calls.

Hierarchical structure

Hierarchical Structure

  • Many OS are designed and implemented using a hierarchical structure.

  • Functions at one level are allowed to refer only to functions provided by the same or lower levels; i.e., there should be no outward calls.

  • Strict hierarchy vs. transparent hierarchy


Virtual machines

Virtual Machines

  • Hierarchical structure concepts can be extended to provide users, including OSs, the illusion of running on separate virtual machines.

  • OS1, OS2, OS3, and User5 deal with the VMM, instead of the real machine.

Virtual Machines

  • VMM provides resources, services, and functions that are the same as those available on the underlying real machine.

  • VMM is actually a complete, but simple, OS for the real machine.

  • Pros: flexibility and convenience

  • Cons: simulation overhead

Object oriented operating systems

Object-Oriented Operating Systems

  • Most of the system is implemented as a collection of objects.

  • Each object encapsulates a data structure and defines a set of operations, called methods, on that data structure.
