Conceptual* architecture of a next-generation BSS optimized for storing image/media BLOBs. More than BLOBs, really. More like GOBs (Ginormulous OBjects, and yes, that’s really a word. Really. Really.)
In CAs, despite there being separate ‘server’ icons, functions like the Dropbox and the Library might really be on the same box, part of the same service, or both. This cartoon-style drawing is just to delineate the process-level functions.
The "Library” seems like it’s a support service for the “Librarian”. It would be built as a CygNet service, but no one except a Librarian would interact with it. Its only job would be to manage the “stacks”, where objects are stored.
