File and Object Replication in Data Grids

  title={File and Object Replication in Data Grids},
  author={Heinz Stockinger and Asad Samar and Koen Holtman and William E. Allcock and Ian T. Foster and Brian Tierney},
Data replication is a key issue in a Data Grid and can be managed in different ways and at different levels of granularity: for example, at the file level or object level. In the High Energy Physics community, Data Grids are being developed to support the distributed analysis of experimental data. We have produced a prototype data replication tool, the Grid Data Management Pilot (GDMP) that is in production use in one physics experiment, with middleware provided by the Globus Toolkit used for… CONTINUE READING
