Data Base Management Systems (DBMSs) today are usually built as subsystems on top of an operating system (OS). This design approach can lead to problems of reliability and efficient performance as well as forcing a duplication of functions in the DBMS and operating system. A new design approach is proposed here which removes much of the function duplication from the DBMS and operating system by placing these functions in independent subsystems. Specifically, an I/O and file support subsystem and a security subsystem are defined. Both subsystems make use of a logical information object model which models stored information in secondary storage.
