This is the template for Facilities Specifications.


Few lines with a promotional 'flavour', e.g. "gCube xxx facilities offer scalable, high-performance, reliable, open source instruments for ..."

Key Features

A bullet list highlighting the main features offered by the facilities. The 'flavour' should be catchy and user-friendly. Some examples are (from MongoDB):

Document-oriented storage
JSON-style documents with dynamic schemas offer simplicity and power.
Full Index Support
Index on any attribute, just like you're used to.
Replication & High Availability
Mirror across LANs and WANs for scale and peace of mind.
Scale horizontally without compromising functionality.



  1. the identified facilities might be quite extent / "fat" from the functional point of view and
  2. the information introduced so far is very generic from a technical point of view

one or more 'subsystem' pages should be created.

Each subsystem page is expected to provide the reader with a description capturing design and deployment aspects as well as supported use cases. The following template is proposed:

Subsystem Specification Template

Next step will be the identification of the subsystems for each facility.
