VOSpace is the IVOA interface to distributed storage. This version extends the existing VOSpace 1.0 (SOAP-based) specification to support containers, links between individual VOSpace instances, third party APIs, and a find mechanism. Note, however, that VOSpace-1.0 compatible clients will not work with this new version of the interface.
This document has been produced by the Grid and Web Services Working Group.
It has been reviewed by IVOA Members and other interested parties, and has been endorsed by the IVOA Executive Committee as an IVOA Recommendation. It is a stable document and may be used as reference material or cited as a normative reference from another document. IVOA's role in making the Recommendation is to draw attention to the specification and to promote its widespread deployment. This enhances the functionality and interoperability inside the Astronomical Community.
