|Grid Storage Management WG (GSM-WG)|
Group Type: Working Group
Group Secretary(s): Alex Sim
In this Working Group we will focus on the definition of the functionality of a standard SRM (Storage Resource Manager) interface. We define Storage Resource Managers (SRMs) as middleware components whose function is to provide dynamic space allocation and file management of shared storage components on the Grid. We see this as a short-term effort to have a workable interface that Grid projects could immediately make use of to resolve interoperability issues between storage systems.
