Discovery Systems (DS) can be considered as entry points for global loosely coupled distributed systems. An efficient Discovery System in essence increases the performance, reliability and decision making capability of distributed systems. With the rapid increase in scale of distributed applications, existing solutions for discovery systems are fast becoming either obsolete or incapable of handling such complexity. They are particularly ineffective when handling service lifetimes and providing up-to-date information, poor at enabling dynamic service access and they can also impose unwanted restrictions on interfaces to widely available information repositories. In this paper we present essential the design characteristics, an implementation and a performance analysis for a discovery system capable of overcoming these deficiencies in large, globally distributed environments.
