Grid Manager

In this document, a "client" is a node that's acting as "just" a client as compared to a "storage server" which is a client that's providing storage services.

Currently, anyone who knows the Introducer fURL may participate in a grid as either a "client" and/or a "storage server". It is useful for some use-cases to allow "clients" to delegate responsibility for choosing storage-servers to some other entity. We call this entity the "grid manager".

Use Cases

As a central entity providing a "managed" grid of storage, I wish for my clients to let me tell them which storage servers they should talk to. In this context, a "managed grid" could be a commercial offering, a corporate grid, or a "technical" friend providing service to "less technical" people.
