Roadmap for Spiral 2


The following goals have been established by the GPO for Spiral 2.

Goal 1: Live experiments, the central goal of Spiral 2. Support significant numbers of research experiments in the end-to-end prototype systems. The GPO expects live experimentation to begin near the end of Spiral 1, which will intensify through Spiral 2 as we begin continuous operation of the prototype systems. This will begin to give us all substantial (early) operational experience, as these experiments will help us all understand the prototypes' strengths and weakness, which will drive our Spiral 3 goals.

Goal 2: Identity management

Goal 3: Improved integration of data & control planes, within clusters

Goal 4: Instrumentation

Goal 5: Interoperability, permitting clusters to access the widest number of aggregate
