The Integrated Rule-Oriented Data System iRODS proof-of-concept will be deployed within the existing U.S. Army Engineer Research and Development Center ERDC Department of Defense Supercomputing Resource Center DSRC to test additional capabilities and features for high performance computing HPC users. iRODS is a data-grid middleware that virtualizes access to data, regardless of which physical storage device the data resides within. Users, and HPC jobs on behalf of users, can leverage the various application programming interfaces APIs within iRODS to search and retrieve data using metadata and a unified data namespace. In addition to facilitating data discovery and retrieval, iRODS has a robust security system to implement fine-grained access control and auditing rules.
