- Andrea Manzi
- Catalin Condurache (EGI.eu)
This session will provide technical support for existing and new users of EGI data services. During the session experts will share technical information, usage tips and tricks about DPM, Dynafed and Onedata and will answer questions from the audience. The session will be interactive - A perfect opportunity to bring questions, and to deep-dive into DPM, Dynafed and Onedata!
The Disk Pool Manager (DPM) is a distributed storage system offering multi-protocol access to a scalable data-store with support for the authentication/communication protocols used in the "grid standard" X509/VOMS and recently extended to OpenID Connect. It’s the most common storage solution in the EGI infrastructure.
The Dynamic Federations system (Dynafed) allows to expose via HTTP and WebDAV a very fast dynamic name space, built on the fly by merging and caching (in memory) metadata items taken from a number of (remote) endpoints. It natively supports HTTP, WebDAV, S3 and MS Azure.
Onedata is a high-performance data management solution that offers unified data access across globally distributed environments and multiple types of underlying storage, allowing users to share, collaborate and perform computations on the stored data easily. Onedata is the technology behind the EGI DataHub service.
