MySpace is a component of AstroGrid, the Virtual Observatory
infrastructure system being developed in the UK under the national
e-Science programme. The MySpace service will provide both temporary
and long-term storage for Virtual Observatory users. This work space
will typically be used to hold results extracted from archives, but can hold any sort of data. In addition, the MySpace service will provide cache storage for distributed processes which are running on the user's behalf. The novel feature of the MySpace service is that, although the individual items are geographically dispersed, the user can access and navigate the work space seamlessly and easily, as though all the items were stored in a single location. MySpace is written in Java and deployed as a set of Web services. It is a fully integrated component of the AstroGrid system, but its modular nature means that it can be installed and used in isolation or, in principle, in conjunction with components from other Virtual Observatory projects. Functionality similar to that of MySpace is likely to be a common requirement in Virtual Observatory projects. MySpace is under active development and its current state and future plans are described.
