StoRM is adopted in the context of WLCG computational Grid framework. It provides data management capabilities in a Grid environment to share, access and transfer data among heterogeneous and geographically distributed data centers. StoRM implements the Storage Resource Manager (SRM) specification.
StoRM works on any POSIX filesystems, but was built to bring in the Grid the advantages of high performance storage systems based on cluster file system (such as GPFS from IBM or Lustre from Sun Microsystems), supporting direct access (native POSIX I/O call) to shared files and directories, as well as other standard Grid access protocols
