The first issue of the RESERVOIR Architecture document has been released. The document focuses on identifying requirements for a highly dynamic computing cloud and defining a high level architecture for a system that can satisfy those requirements. The goal of this document is to setup the foundation on which the components that make the RESERVOIR compute cloud will be developed. However, this is not intended to be a static document; instead it is a living document that will be refined as the project progresses.
