iRODS Development Update: May 2017

May has been a very busy month. We are in the final stretch before we head to the User Group Meeting in Utrecht, Netherlands in under two weeks. The agenda has been posted, register today!


  • BioIT World 2017

    The iRODS Consortium met many new faces and reconnected with many members and users at BioITWorld 2017. We attended the Best Practices for Big Data in Life Sciences Workshop hosted by DDN and were impressed with the breadth of expertise in the room. They are all struggling with managing their continued growth and expressed a shared need for a metadata solution that could span their entire infrastructure. Of course, we think iRODS is an answer.

  • Lustre User Group 2017

    The iRODS Consortium is being represented at this moment in Bloomington, IN for LUG 2017. We are sharing our experience with building a new connector that listens to LCAP and updates the iRODS Catalog.
