The document included in this resource outlines the initial requirements, design, and implementation of what would become HydroShare. The document is titled "A CUAHSI DataCenter for Hydroinformatics: Draft Specifications", and was written in 2012 by Alva Couch. The scope of the document is as follows:

This document is not a complete proposal, nor does it attempt to scientifically justify the above missions of the datacenter. Instead, this document focuses upon the feasibility of accomplishing the above missions, the technical details of doing so, the design of the overall personnel and computing infrastructure necessary to do so, and the cost of that infrastructure.
This document is separated into three logically distinct parts: requirements, design, and implementation.
• The requirements section lists the overall requirements for the datacenter, including mission, relationship to prior work, and perceived high-level challenges of meeting the mission.
• The design section specifies how the datacenter will meet requirements via high-level capabilities, processes, and personnel roles.
• The implementation section describes policy decisions to be made in implementing the design, including a plan for overall sustainability of the datacenter.
