Why RESERVOIR?

The RESERVOIR Framework is a blue print for CTOs and CIOs to build a Cloud with  all the codes and architecture specifications needed to do so.  Using RESERVOIR Open Source technologies, Cloud providers can now build an advanced Cloud with the balancing of workloads, lowering costs, and moving workloads across geographic locations through a federation of Clouds. RESERVOIR components are power tools enabling the on-demand delivery of more cost-effective services and more moderate operating costs, tested and deployed by four industry success stories.
