SUMMARY Many production Grid and e-Science infrastructures have begun to offer services to end-users during the past several years with an increasing number of scientific applications that require access to a wide variety of resources and services in multiple Grids. Therefore, the Grid Interoperation Now—Community Group of the Open Grid Forum—organizes and(More)
Storage management is one of the most important enabling technologies for large-scale scientific investigations. Having to deal with multiple heterogeneous storage and file systems is one of the major bottlenecks in managing, replicating, and accessing files in distributed environments. Storage Resource Managers (SRMs), named after their web services(More)
In January 1999, CERN began to develop CASTOR ("CERN Advanced STORage manager"). This Hierarchical Storage Manager targetted at HEP applications has been in full production at CERN since May 2001. It now contains more than two Petabyte of data in roughly 9 million files. In 2002, 350 Terabytes of data were stored for COMPASS at 45 MB/s and a Data Challenge(More)
The world's largest scientific machine-the Large Hadron Collider (LHC), situated outside Geneva, Switzerland-will generate some 15P8 of data at rates up to 1.5G81s (in the case of the heavy-ion experiment, AUCE) to tape per year of operation. The processing of this data will be performed using a worldwide Grid, the (worldwide) LHC Computing Grid built on(More)
