Z47 Virtual Processor:
The Z47 Virtual Processor is a Self-Contained Distributed Operating System (SCD-OS) of about 500K for all platforms. Z++ applications become processes of the Z47 Virtual Processor, which manages its own threads, processes, local and remote inter-process communications signals and exceptions without making system calls to the underlying operating system.

What makes the Z47 Processor a Distributed Operating System
- The Z47 Virtual Processor is a Self-Contained Distributed Operating System(SCD-OS) operating independently of the host Operating System.
- The Z47 Virtual Processor manages its own processes, threads and inter-process communications. It does not create system processes or threads.
- Z++ applications become distributed communicating processes among multiple Z47 Virtual Processors.
- Allows Z++ applications to operate on multiple operating systems.
- Designed to greatly reduce the need for multiple developers with expertise on multiple platforms.
- Dramatically reduces development costs and time to market by allowing developers to focus on creating quality applications versus navigating OS dependencies.
