iRODS Embedded Tutorial: An Introduction to iRODS Data Management Software

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

iRODS is open source data management software, providing a virtualization layer that spans storage devices, a metadata catalog, a rule engine that can be programmed to execute any action upon any trigger, and federated access between independently managed deployments. It has been used at the multi-petabyte scale to implement sophisticated preservation and access control policies, with auditing; extract metadata from files to make the metadata searchable; track data processing steps from raw inputs to finished products; and unify data management and access across local and cloud-based file systems and object stores.
This tutorial will be a hands-on workshop where attendees will learn how to: use iRODS administrative commands, set up automatic replication between a local file system and a cloud-based object storage system, use an iRODS rule to automate file format transformation, explore the iRODS metadata catalog, and transfer data to and from iRODS.
