[Vrs-development] thoughts

What about a platform that supports Mobile Agents (essentially program code 
and state that can be sent over the network to be executed on another 
computer), VPN, distributed power and space? On top of this one could 
implement almost anything (by using those features). A Web Service (or any 
service) could distribute the power for calculating the highest prime number. 
A Mobile Agent could be sent to visit a number of servers (for network 
management purposes), collect information about them and travel back to the 
original host to return the results. An organisation could use this as a 
distributed file system. I don't see what one couldn't implement on top of 
that platform  :-)

I recently finished my thesis about Network Management and I've gotten quite 
interested in distributed systems, mobile agents etc. It'd be very exciting 
developing the platform I described. This platform or middleware could be 
used for almost anything, web services and advanced network management among 
other things. But VRS maybe covers this? Perhaps SEE/DEE as well?
