Description : Data grid storage management system
iRODS, the Integrated Rule-Oriented Data System, is a data grid
software system developed by the Data Intensive Cyber Environments
research group (developers of the SRB, the Storage Resource Broker), and collaborators.
The iRODS system is based on expertise gained through a decade
of applying the SRB technology in support of Data Grids, Digital Libraries,
Persistent Archives, and Real-time Data Systems.
iRODS management policies (sets of assertions these communities make
about their digital collections) are characterized in iRODS Rules
and state information.
At the iRODS core, a Rule Engine interprets the Rules to decide
how the system is to respond to various requests and conditions.
