Just as BSD Unix started out as a research project at the University of California at Berkeley, so might the latest field of research at the University result in software released into the public domain, according to Dr John Ousterhout, quoted in Microbytes Daily: a project concerned with the storage, communication and manipulation of very large amounts of information has been the subject of a $3.8m award from the US National Science Foundation, and projects include Ousterhout’s Sprite Unix-like operating system and the Dash global high-speed network project, as well as a hierarchical storage system to be based on an experimental information server with an 80 MIPS processor, 1Gb primary memory, 1Tb of optical disk storage, and 100 high capacity magnetic disk drives.
