Morris, J.H., Leong, J., Nichols, D., West, M.J., Satyanarayanan, M.


The Information Technology Center, a collaborative effort between IBM and Carnegie Mellon, is in the process of creating Andrew, a prototype computing and communication system for universities. It will be of the largest distributed personal computing systems of its kind. An earlier paper[11] describes the system in general. This one focuses on our experience with the network and file system.
