Advances in packaging and interface technologies have made it possible for software components to be shared across the network through encapsulation and offered as network services. They allow end-users to focus on their applications and obtain remote services when needed simply by invoking them across the network. Many groups have built significant infrastructures for providing domain-specific high performance services. However, transforming high performance applications into network services is labor intensive and time consuming because there is little existing infrastructure to utilize. In this paper, we propose a software toolkit and runtime infrastructure for rapid deployment of network services.
