Swestore iRODS

Swestore iRODS is distributed across two SNIC centres NSC and PDC.

Data is stored in two copies with each copy at a different SNIC centre. This enables the system to cope with a multitude of issues ranging from a simple crash of a storage element to losing an entire site while still providing access to the stored data.
