The LSST Data Management System (DMS) is a set of services employing a variety of software components running on computational and networking infrastructure that combine to deliver science data products to the observatory’s users and support observatory operations. This document describes the components, their service instances, and their deployment environments as well as the interfaces among them, the rest of the LSST system, and the outside world.
