A distributed file system, based on a client-server architecture. IRODS is a policy-based data management system that allows users to access files seamlessly across a distributed environment, based upon their attributes rather than just their names or physical locations. It replicates, syncs and archives data, connecting heterogeneous resources in a logical and abstracted manner. Policies can be coded as functions (micro-services) and chains can be triggered on an event and condition (Rules).
