Data Grid Technology Evolves/Expands
In collaboration with the iRODS Consortium and storageFOUNDRY, Daystrom has added the Meridian Data Grid Controller (DGC) to our portfolio of solutions.
MERIDIAN is the comprehensive automation platform for building a secure, distributed infrastructure that manages data via dynamic-policies and machine-based learning instead of manual administration.
Built on the extensible iRODS architecture and hardened for 20+years by the scientific community, Meridian Controllers implement a Data Control Plane (DCP) that governs all aspects of data ingest, access, protection, encryption, integrity and auditing, both internal and external to the federated grid architecture. Data Grids themselves are a 20-year old technology developed to provide:
- GEO-TIERED LARGE DATA WORKFLOWS
- INTELLIGENT DATA DISCOVERY
- SCALE-ANYWHERE ACCESS
- SECURE COLLABORATION
Daystrom’s contribution to the projects are the enhancement of multi-factor authentication options, plus key features needed to integrate DGCs smoothly into both M&E and Clinical Life Sciences environments.
iRODS is maintained and enhanced by the iRODS Consortium and the iRODS community. The iRODS Consortium is composed of leading organizations including Sanger Institute, NASA, RENCI/DICE, Data Direct Networks, EMC, and Seagate.
