It has already been mentioned in the previous chapter that PervComp, simy speaking, is PervNet us computing support (i.e., middlewares and apications). To start us on the road towards understanding what is PervNet, this chapter does three things. First, it introduces the idea of PervNet architecture, which lays the foundation for the rest of the book. Second, it exores the properties (or, attributes) that PervComp apications demand from PervNet. Finally, it introduces some of the key elements in the imementation of PervNet.
