SIRS-3 is the third subproject carried as part of the Scalable Internet Resource Server project, which started in 1999. This final report has two purposes. First, it discusses the results of SIRS-3 by taking a look at the original plans as described in the SIRS-3 project proposal. Second, it provides a brief assessment of the entire SIRS project. This assessment also serves as the basis for an outlook on future activities.
We start with giving some background information on SIRS in Section 2, followed by a presentation of the SIRS-3 achievements in Section 3. An assessment of the entire SIRS project is given in Section 4.
