SUPER-UX is a version of the Unix operating system from NEC that is used on its SX series of supercomputers.[3]

History

The initial version of SUPER-UX was based on UNIX System V version 3.1 with features from BSD 4.3.[4][5][6] The version for the NEC SX-9 was based on SVR4.2MP with BSD enhancements.[7]

Features

SUPER-UX is a 64-bit UNIX operating system.[4] It supports the Supercomputer File System (SFS).[4]

Earth Simulator

The Earth Simulator uses a custom OS called "ESOS" (Earth Simulator Operating System) based on SUPER-UX.[8][9][10] It has many enhanced features custom designed for the Earth Simulator which are not in the regular SUPER-UX OS.[8]
