Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. LOCUS was a distributed operating system developed at UCLA during the 1980s. It was notable for providing an early implementation of the single-system image idea, where a cluster of machines appeared to be one larger machine. A desire to commercialize the technologies developed for LOCUS inspired the creation of the Locus Computing Corporation which went on to include ideas from LOCUS in various products, including OSF/1 AD and, finally, the SCO-Tandem UnixWare NonStop Clusters product.
