Rucio (https://rucio.cern.ch/) is a data management software, originally developed for ATLAS at CERN to supersede their previous data management software 10 years ago. Since then Rucio has been constantly developed by ATLAS and other communities that have come to use Rucio, ensuring that it is a feature rich, and well maintained open software.
Multi-VO Rucio implemented by the STFC in the UK hosts Rucio as a service for many communities. This is to provide communities the opportunity to use Rucio for their data management solution, without having to learn about, and host their own instance of Rucio.
We will discuss how Rucio works generally, this includes how you would interact with Rucio, some of the important concepts within Rucio, and what Rucio then interacts with to move the data.
FTS ( https://fts.web.cern.ch/fts/ ) is a low level data movement service, responsible for reliable bulk transfer of files between storages. It’ s responsible for globally distributing the majority of the LHC data across the WLCG infrastructure and it supports many communities is EGI. We will introduce the main functionalities and show how to interact with the service in order to schedule transfers.
