Innovative Operating System Elements

The lecture is about new concepts currently introduced to different areas of operating systems. The lectures typically start with describing the functionality of the operating system area, how the requirements for that changed in the last time and how the new elements are - or try to be - a way to solve that. The course enables the attendee to understand the new concepts which are important for larger production environments.
