    3 Note -- We are currently in the process of updating the documentation for writing the SOAP webservice for a Data Provider. 
     3We (the VSO) will assist archives with writing the software necessary to connect to the VSO.  If you can make a data catalog available (as a database or static files), we can host the parts that 'search' through your data and resolve it into links from your site.  Depending on the size of the data, we may be able to find additional sites to host the data and/or mirror it to ensure availability.

     39You may also want to read our [wiki:https://docs.virtualsolar.org/wiki/MinimumInformation recommendations on metadata] to include in your FITS files (or ancillary documentation) if you are still at a stage where you have control over the creation of the files to be distributed.

    4447For those sites wishing to host the service themselves, we have a [wiki:DataProviderInheritable Data Provider Inheritable] available to assist providers, and examples of Data Providers that search data organized in directories, and those that use databases for cataloging metadata.  The SOAP inheritable is written in Perl, and uses [http://soaplite.com/ SOAP::Lite].

    46 If you wish for one of the VSO partners to host the webservice, we will need to work with you to write the interface to search your data, and may need remote read access to catalog databases. 
     49If you wish for one of the VSO partners to host the webservice, we will need to work with you to write the interface to search your data, and may need remote read access to catalog databases, or a way to retrieve static dumps of your catalog.
