OSG Storage Activities


The OSG Storage group has been subsumed into the OSG Software group.

For further support, use the following guidelines:

The scope of OSG Storage and Data management includes:

  • Storage Element implementation, policy, deployment and documentation about storage areas that are accessible to the OSG infrastructure.
    • The storage resources are of clearly-defined types (tape and disk), and flavor (permanent, persistent, transient, and volatile).
    • Interfaces for the writing and reading of data by applications to and from storage over the grid.
    • Policies and agreements for use of Storage Resources on OSG.
  • Local Storage implementation, policy, deployment and documentation of storage accessible to the applications when running on an OSG site.
    • Definition of the data and storage areas available in the job's execution environment.
    • Policies and agreements for the use and management of local storage on OSG sites.
  • Storage Interface Definitions with respect to interoperability of storage resources across Grids.
