Multi-file dataset management - iRODS

iRODS is a tool that can manage datasets consisting of up to hundreds of millions of files. Features include:

  • Data can be stored in "vaults" at different sites with a single namespace for file access.
  • Files can be replicated between vaults.
  • Supports a federation of "zones" where zones in different locations can have their own metadata servers.
