VOSpace is the IVOA interface to distributed storage. This specification presents the second RESTful version of the interface. Except for minor additions to the 2.1 specification, it is functionally equivalent to the SOAP-based VOSpace 1.1 specification. Note that all 1.x VOSpace clients will not work with this new version of the interface. Clients and services written for VOSpace 2.1 will interoperate with 2.0 clients and services, however 2.0 clients and services are incompatible with the 2.1 specification.
