  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.
