CIS 210 - Operating Systems Principles

5 Credits
An intermediate study in the principles of operating system design using a conceptual approach. Directed to those whose primary responsibility will be the use of operating systems in computer information systems development and applications. Major areas discussed are the OS theory, applications and management issues. Considers files and file structure, I/O, memory and process/processor management, networking, system management/evaluation and applications. Heavy focus on virtual machines, virtual networks and management thereof. Students will use virtual software tools such as VMWare Server, VMWare Workstation, Virtual PC and Virtual Box.
