An introduction to the Axon architecture is presented. Axon is a host communication architecture for the distributed systems which can support interprocess communication with high throughput and low latency across a very high-speed internetwork. Network virtual storage (NVS) in the Axon host communication architecture for distributed applications is described. NVS extends segmented paged virtual storage management and address translation mechanisms to include segments located across an internetwork. This provides the ability to use efficiently the shared-memory paradigm in distributed systems for high-performance applications, such as scientific visualization and imaging
