Architecture and Implementation

Overall architecture of the Science Mesh and how those components are implemented

When joining the Science Mesh as a site, it is useful to understand the architecture of the system on conceptual level.

There is a Central Component that handles metadata of the Science Mesh together with monitoring and accounting. In addition to the conceptual architecture, we also describe how the Central Component is implemented.

The Central Component is a source of data for the Mesh Directory Service that provides a user interface in the invitation workflow to let the user reveal which system should be used to establish sharing trust.

If unsure where to go next, read about the General Architecture.
