Pawsey Supercomputing Centre is pleased to invite you to an all day Integrated Rule-Oriented Data System (iRODS) training session to be held at the Australian Resources Research Centre (ARRC) on Thursday 17th October 2019.

iRODS is open source data management software used by research organizations and government agencies worldwide.

iRODS is released as a production-level distribution aimed at deployment in mission critical environments. It virtualizes data storage resources, so users can take control of their data, regardless of where and on what device the data is stored.

The development infrastructure supports exhaustive testing on supported platforms.

The plugin architecture supports microservices, storage systems, authentication, networking, databases, rule engines, and an extensible API.

iRODS has been deployed in thousands of locations worldwide, across industries as diverse as oil and gas, life sciences, physical sciences, archives and records management, and media and entertainment.
