Current Implementation Status: 
This capability is currently supported by the following 4 components:
Component User facing? Component’s role in the capability
Information Services yes The Information Services Warehouse provides a central, reliable, fault tolerant, and scalable repository of discoverable resource information. This component is specifically designed to support the discovery use case and often contains copies of the authoritative resource information produced or managed by other components. The Warehouse REST API implements RESTful interfaces to update and search CI resource information and enables the “pull” method for discovery. Information Service Routers move/route information between publish/subscribe components and update/search components. This enables published information to be discoverable thru search interfaces, and updated information to be forwarded to subscribers.
Research Software Portal (RSP) yes
Resource Description Repository (RDR)
Software and Service Availability Repository
