iRODS Workshop

 http://irods.diceresearch.org

The iRODS integrated Rule-Oriented Data System enables the creation of policy-based systems that enforce your data management requirements.  The iRODS data grid characterizes policies as computer actionable rules, and characterizesprocedures as remotely executable micro-services.

The rules control the execution of the micro-services, ensuring that your management policies are enforced.  Examples of policies include retention, disposition, replication, distribution, time-dependent access controls, integrity validation, metadata extraction, and data redaction.

The iRODS workshop will:

  1. introduce the concepts behind the integrated Rule Oriented Data System
  2. help with installation of the iRODS software on your personal laptop (Windows, Solaris, Unix, or MacOS)
  3. provide example rule sets
  4. demonstrate how to modify the rule sets to address your management requirements

Participants are asked to bring a laptop that has wireless access to the workshop.
