Abstract: MySpace is a component of AstroGrid, a system for accessing astronomical archives which is being developed in the UK. MySpace provides AstroGrid users with scratch space for storing temporary or permanent datasets, typically the results of queries submitted to large databases, and other transient files. The novel feature of the MySpace system is that the scratch space is geographically dispersed, typically with stores at the various sites hosting AstroGrid services. Users can access and navigate MySpace seamlessly and easily, the network details of the individual stores being hidden. MySpace is a fully integrated component of the AstroGrid system, written in Java and communicating via Web services. It is under active development and its current state and future plans are described. Functionality similar to that of MySpace seems likely to be a reasonably common requirement in distributed systems, and the experience gained with MySpace should be applicable elsewhere.
