Naval research programs are focusing on a distributed architecture approach for successful migration of data from one region to another. This presents a challenging area of modeling and managing the distributed approaches. This article describes a service-based model, which comprises of two steps that are decomposition and orchestration, for effectively managing distributed cluster networks. The contribution of this paper is two-fold. First, the article describes in detail the information transfer and entropy based decomposition approach. Second, it demonstrates the effectiveness of the orchestration approach to address challenges in distributed clusters using a simulation. We have implemented the decomposition approach in both Java and Matlab for verification.
