From SPACE Wiki
SPACEflight lets you experience the Internet of Services! The SPACEflight live demonstrator system consists of a basic operating system plus system-integrated and preconfigured SPACE components in the form of packages which form the base of a service marketplace. It also features several scenario services with full web service descriptions and corresponding rich clients as service frontends, for Rusco and other implementations. A special service-integrated desktop environment and a cloud computing environment with more complex scenario services including value-added services and resource service slices are also present. For developers, there is a complete engineering and provisioning toolchain. In the future, more hosting technologies and cloud service options will be integrated. SPACEflight runs without any Internet connection but can set up a connection for additional features such as distributed grid computing integration.
The goal of SPACEflight is twofold: First, it allows desktop users to experience the power of the Internet of Services from a service provider or consumer perspective, or from a top-down view on a complete service ecosystem. Second, it can be used as a pure server system for rapid replication of service hosting functionality. Such a distributed setup linked to a central marketplace instance of SPACEflight is useful for running experiments and simulations.
SPACEflight in Action
A pre-installed instance of SPACEflight 1.0 beta6 can be seen and experienced in the THESEUS-Innovationszentrum in Berlin!
